‘What kind of house does a man who has been imprisoned in a six-foot-by-nine-foot cell for 40 years dream of?’ 

The injustice of solitary confinement and the transformative power of art are explored in this feature documentary that follows the unlikely friendship between a New York artist and Herman Wallace, one of America’s longest serving solitary prisoners as they collaborate on an acclaimed art project.

Join the Correctional Association of New York as we co-present the New York City premiere of Herman’s House on the opening night of the Harlem International Film Festival.
