As announced in our last newsletter, the Angola 3's Robert King has been traveling in the US, speaking in Chicago about solitary confinement at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and in Canada alongside screenings of the film Hard Time.

Three videos are embedded below. First is the original trailer for Hard Time. Second is an additional teaser of Hard Time, with French captions. Third is the full length version of Ron Harpelle's earlier film, which he says led him to Robert King and Hard Time, entitled In Security, with footage from Angola Prison in Louisiana.
