Escape and Return

This short movie is set in Veenhuizen and the surrounding landscape. It is a portrait of two boys who escape from prison and have no idea what to do in the outside world, so far from their ‘home’. But the film has an added layer. The boys’ sense of being lost represents a bigger social issue connected to prison policies. If we keep prisoners shut away and fail to teach them about daily life during their time inside, how will they find their way in society after their release?
