PUNISHMENT: A FAILED SOCIAL EXPERIMENT provides a detailed, critical analysis of the
current legal and justice system generally in operation across the planet whilst also
providing potential solutions which work on preventing crime and creating a much more
socially sustainable society.

The documentary film consists of interviews with various individuals; all of whom
provide information on where we are going wrong when we treat offenders, and what we
could head towards in regards to the solutions available.

It must be recognised that in order for change to occur in the system of punishment and 'justice', wider societal and cultural issues need to be addressed, as this documentary film recognises that there are inherent flaws in our current social system.

Although most sources of information originate from the United Kingdom, it is
reasonable to state that the topics examined will apply to many other nations.

Punishment: A Failed Social Experiment is an independent film production and that has
just been released online for free download and distribution.
