“(…) the substratum of the outcasts and outsiders, the exploited and persecuted of other race and other colours, the unemployed and the unemployable. (…) The fact that they start refusing to play the game may be the fact which marks the beginning of the end of a period.“ (Herbert Marcuse)

Part two of the prison project. Its starting point is the question what unites all humans (inside and outside): dreams. Texts are written with the inmates, songs and performances rehearsed. The subtext is supplied by the invisible but ever present walls and the question whether our dreams can overcome them.

The African-American protests in the 1950s and 60s and the beginnings of the Black Panther Party were historic watershed moments, but they also kindled a deep-seated feeling of irritation in both the white and the black US population. Suddenly, the perception of society changed for everyone involved. There’s a reason why the subtitle of this film is “You don’t know what we are”.
