Children in Jail: New Website and Short Film on T. Don Hutto

Via Grits and Eye on Williamson County, there is a new website and an upcoming short documentary about the T. Don Hutto family detention center in Taylor, Texas. The film and interactive website are called Children in Jail, and based on the trailer, the film looks really good:


We recently named the controversy around T. Don Hutto our the one of the top five private prison story for 2007, and have highlighted another great short film on the detention center - Hutto: America's Family Prison. Here's hoping Children in Jail and America's Family Prison will continue the scrutiny on T. Don Hutto and the practice of incarcerating immigrant families for a profit in 2008. We'll keep you updated on upcoming screenings of both films.
