Out of Place

Asia Johnson's avatar Asia Johnson

In prison, to be Out of Place means to receive a Major Misconduct ticket in the Michigan Department of Corrections and is defined in part as follows: absent from where one is required to be... I’m Asia Johnson...and I’m formerly incarcerated. I wrote, produced, and directed Out of Place, a short film that explores the trauma to prison pipeline featuring a cast made up entirely of formerly incarcerated women. During my own incarceration I realized that you should not squeeze a woman’s life into a 6 x 8 foot cell. Women are the fastest growing segment of the incarcerated population. That would make every single woman in prison out of place. Out of Place is about women rediscovering their voice in a system meant to silence and forget them.
