HBO Prepares to Air the 1st Prison Documentary Recorded by an Inmate
His name is Omar Broadway. He was a New Jersey prison inmate who snuck a video camera into a maximum security prison and was able to record some of his time incarcerated. The documentary is currently scheduled to premiere on HBO on July 14th.
Billed as the first film ever directed behind bars, the movie took over three years to plan as Omar worked out an angle to sneak a camera inside.
He recorded footage for six months in Northern State Prison in Newark, New Jersey which included footage of abuse from guards, beat-downs and interaction with The Bloods street gang that he was an active member of.
All I can say is…
