Made in Prison


Aleksey Andronov has a long term to serve in prison, but his talent has helped him reach out to the world over the barbed wire. His hobby - shooting films - was meant to keep him busy and save him from deteriorating in his prison cell, but it went beyond that: he received international recognition and awards at various film competitions about prison. For obvious reasons, the setting is always a jail, however, his fellow inmates say that Aleksey's films are not really about prison itself, but about the timeless values that remain alive on both sides of the bars.
