Faith in the Big House Trailer (2011)
Trailer for the documentary Faith in the Big House.
Faith in the Big House takes us inside the workings of an evangelical Christian prison retreat, a new fixture in America's lock-ups. Prison ministries aim to harvest souls for Christ, and claim to reduce the number of inmates who end up right back in lock-up after release.
On a sprawling maximum security prison farm outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana, half a dozen prisoners are about to be immersed for three days in an "encounter with Christ."
Will a rock guitarist, a gang banger from New Orleans's Lower Ninth Ward, a self-styled prison theologian, a pedophile turned choir director, and a Muslim ex-football star encounter the possibility for redemption? Or will the experience do little to change these men in the long haul and fail to keep them from returning to prison?
