Prison Blues by Vredeveld, Saskia
The Bijlmer bajes correctional facility is a highlevel penitentiary on the outskirts of Amsterdam. The documentary film Prison Blues by Saskia Vredeveld is an open and honest portrait of life inside this penitentiary. Though on the outside one prisoner has realised his childhood dream, he was never aware of the fact that it would put him in jail. Another prisoner sees his recurring dream as a way to come to terms with a gruesome deed he has committed. In short, Prison Blues looks at how prisoners in the Bijlmer jail are dealing with the crime(s) they have committed.
