THE NATIONAL REHABILITATION CENTER

Two years before Peter Watkins’ famous Punishment Park, director Penelope Spheeris takes the McCarran Act to its inevitable next step and shows us – via an early use of mockumentary – what the U.S. might be like if potential subversives were simply locked up en masse before they had a chance to subvert anything. Preserved by the Academy Film Archive.

 

Screened on 16 mm.
