Herman's House2012

  • 3.5
Herman Wallace may be the longest-serving prisoner in solitary confinement in America (40 years and counting in a 6-by-9-foot cell). This award-winning documentary is a moving account of the remarkable expression his struggle finds in an unusual art project proposed by New York artist Jackie Sumell. Featuring a full-scale model of Herman's cell and detailed plans of his dream home, the art project has brought thousands around the world face-to-face with the cruel and unusual punishment of long-term solitary confinement. Imagining Wallace's dream home began as a game and became an interrogation of justice and punishment in America.
