6x9 Francesca Panetta, Lindsay Poulton

Film index A to Z

For its first VR documentary experiment, the English daily The Guardian transports the user inside a solitary-confinement cell. 6x9 conveys the harsh reality and psychological damage suffered by prisoners in solitary. At this moment, more than 80,000 inmates are in solitary confinement in the United States. They spend 22 to 24 hours a day in their cells, with little or no human contact for weeks, months and sometimes even decades. Here, seven people tell their stories: hallucinations, stress, anxiety, paranoia – serious consequences that call into question the legitimacy of this brutal form of punishment. A journalistic documentary experience set in a convincing virtual reality.
