MAKING THE FILM
16 months, hundreds of hours of footage...
The Art Of Incarceration was conceived out of a strong friendship between filmmaker Alex Siddons and lead subject (and Writer/Co-Producer) Robby Wirramanda. Together with Christopher Austin - whom Alex met within the Indigenous unit of Fulham prison – they began the long process of filming hundreds of hours of life inside the prison - and out of it.
More recently, Uncle Jack Charles has joined the team (and his old friends) to lend his voice to an issue he feels very passionate about.
The Art Of Incarceration could not have been made without the support of The Torch program, the Fulham Correctional Centre and Corrections Victoria, and for that we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

“ An uncompromising documentary ”

Jake Watt, maketheswitch.com.au
“Honest and eye opening”
