In the age where the arts and the knowledge are riddled with haze of political and economical interests; using media is to navigate through murky waters that blurs the vision. Rarely, one comes across a piece that combines the poetics of arts and transparency of knowledge, resulting in a vivid critique of society.
At Night I Fly is a poetic testimony from a secluded world. New Folsom is one of the strictest prisons in USA. A brutal world with riots, heavily armed guards and murders between rivaling gangs. In the middle of this there is also hope. In the film we meet several prisoners sentenced to life who take part in the programme Arts in Correction, where they meet over racial borders and gang hierarchies. These men have grown during their time in prison, they have learnt what it really means to be a human being. At night I Fly is film about the power of art.
