Northern Nevada Correctional Center
This video is a personal project, direction and editing by Begg Design.
Northern Nevada Correctional Center is part of a prison complex located in Carson City, established in 1964 and managed by the Nevada Department of Corrections.
In 2012 Katherine accompanied Ron Levine (photographer and author of Prisoners of Age, a series of photographs and interviews with elderly inmates in prisons in the United States and Canada since 1996) to NNCC to conduct interviews while filming with inmates in the True Grit program.
NNCC is designed with a capacity of approximately 1620 inmates and about 200 are in the True Grit program – these inmates, convicted of murder, robbery, drug dealing and rape – are not locked in cells.
Prison officials from other states and even Canada regularly visit to learn more about the program that was started by senior psychologist Mary Harrison, who runs the program, in 2004.
The photo shows Katherine chatting with the inmates in the True Grit program upon arrival at the prison.
