Solitary Confinement Project: The Last 4 Hours

On December 12, 2016, James Burns voluntarily entered into solitary confinement in Arizona’s La Paz County Jail, where he spent 30 days in isolation.

Read his article "Why I’m Voluntarily Going into Solitary Confinement" here:

Before he became a filmmaker, Burns spent his early years in and out of the criminal justice system for crimes he committed as a minor. He did multiple stints in solitary confinement—the longest one lasting eleven months. In an effort to start a conversation about the continued use of solitary confinement in the criminal justice system, VICE documented the hour-to-hour reality of his time inside.

Having completed the 30 days, Burns left La Paz County Jail on January 10, 2017.
