Der sehenswerte Kurzfilm „Locked Out. Injustice in the justice system.“ prangert die schlechten Chancen US-amerikanischer Strafgefangener auf eine erfolgreiche Resozialisierung nach Haftentlassung an.
Holden is just one of the 2.4 million people who was entrapped within the criminal justice system. After his release from prison he does all he can to make it in a world that does all it can to keep him “Locked Out.”
The systematic and state sanctioned disenfranchisement of people with criminal records creates second-class citizens, as people are stripped of their right to vote and their chance to challenge oppressive policies. Being excluded from access to public housing, educational loans and jobs makes bettering their lives an unattainable American Dream.
