About the Film:
Three incarcerated teenage girls get a chance for redemption in a most unlikely form: a musical based on their lives. As they write and stage their play, the girls confront the heart-rending situations that led up to their crimes and take a first step toward breaking free of the prison system. Shot over 9 months with unprecedented prison access, this film gives a striking view into the circumstances leading up to juvenile incarceration, and the transformational power of the arts. GIRLS ON THE WALL has been used to powerful effect by educators in fields ranging from social work, music and theater arts, criminal justice, filmmaking, gender studies and public policy.
