The Corridor: documenting education in jail

May 4, 2015

Education is considered a way out of the prison system and poverty. Yet ironically, for some people education is more attainable from behind bars. Inside San Bruno Jail #5 is the Five Keys Charter school. It’s one of the nation’s first high schools within a jail, and the subject of a documentary now in production called "The Corridor."  KALW's Leila Day sat down with filmmakers Annelise Wunderlich and Richard O'Connell to learn more.

RICHARD O'CONNELL: It’s like a domino effect. Suddenly you have a different experience. And you experience that you can actually do things and get things done, and there’s hope.
