In The Land of the Free is the story of Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox and Robert King. They are known as the Angola 3 and have spent almost a century between them in solitary confinement in Angola, the Louisiana State
Penitentiary. Herman and Albert are still held in solitary confinement after thirty seven years. The film is narrated by Samuel L Jackson and examines the story of these extraordinary men who appear to have been targeted by the prison authorities for being members of the Black Panthers and because they fought against the terrible conditions and systematic sexual slavery that was rife in the prison.

The film will be followed by Q and A with the director Vadim Jean and artist Carrie Reichardt, a long-standing correspondent and supporter of the Angola 3.
