Documentary looks at hospice care in prison

Filmmaker Edgar Barens gained exclusive access to the Iowa State Penitentiary to follow the last days of prisoner Jack Hall, who was serving time for murder. At the tail of his illness, many of Hall's fellow inmates picked up duties for his health care. We talk to Barens about his film Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall which has been nominated for a Short Documentary Feature Oscar this year. Photo: Flickr/jason nahrung
