OUR FATHERS
AN AUDIO SERIES RECORDED AT ARLES PRISON

PROJECT POSTPONED TO JANUARY 2022

ARLES, FRANCE

Our Fathers is a seven-episode drama series freely inspired by Shakespeare’s King Lear.

It will be written and directed at the prison of Arles where a group of inmates have been working since 2014 to create a “company for actors and authors”.

Since then, these inmates have had the opportunity to work, make films and plays with theatre directors such as Joël Pommerat and Caroline Guiela Nguyen.

Our Fatherswill be recorded in the prison itself, after months of creative writing and improvisation workshops.
