A Peculiar Silence

This film tells the story of playwright Liza Jessie Peterson's shutdown 2020 performance of her acclaimed play The Peculiar Patriot at Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary, America’s largest prison-plantation. The documentary examines what led to the shutdown of the performance, the material that confronted a system, and how the impact of Peterson's visit rippled through Angola long after the record of her visit was erased by prison authorities.
