The Screen Guide

SONGS FROM THE INSIDE is a 50-minute TV documentary musical, the first of this genre to be made in Australia. The film explores the stories of eight prisoners living inside the walls of Berrimah Prison through music, song and dance. With a holding capacity of over 800, Berrimah's the Northern Territory’s largest prison. Nearly 85% of inmates are Indigenous. The result is an in depth portrait of both the prison and its inmates, people normally out of sight and mind of contemporary Australia.
