Retrospective, Sweden 1957, 20 Min., no dialogue

Images of a juvenile prison near Stockholm. We see the young men at work in the garden centre and in the workshop, at meal distribution and kitchen clean-up, playing cards and reading, playing sports and showering. The film depicts their aspirations, which materialise in tattoos and pictures on cell walls. It shows their loneliness when they’re confined to their cells.

Director Peter Weiss, Hans Nordenström
