Docu­men­tary about the new, hyper­modern Justi­tieel Complex Zaanstad, which uses effi­ciency, computer-controlled tech­nology and a smaller staff to accom­mo­date more prisoners.
Accom­mo­dating more pris­oners with a smaller staff; is this possible? This docu­men­tary follows a team behind the scenes of the brand-new Justi­tieel Complex Zaanstad, where this theo­ret­ical ques­tion is answered in prac­tice. Apart from tech­no­log­ical novel­ties, the methods are different too: detainees re-inte­grate in-house. They are held account­able for their actions and can thus earn more freedom of move­ment. What does this proce­dure mean for the warders, who are daily confronted with aggres­sion and psychi­atric disorders?
