Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Directed and Produced by Benjamin Garcia




Out of Sight, Out of Mind California inmate Anthony Robinson Jr. risks it all to help document the expensive and traumatic practice of shipping state prisoners to out-of-state private prisons. Using a contraband cell phone, Anthony offers first-person insights into his experience from inside the walls of a private prison located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. With the help of an activist newspaper, old friend, and private-prison experts, Anthony eloquently dissects a system that has made him a commodity to be bought and sold.
