Short Film: ONE MORE DAY, 13min., Canada, Documentary

This short documentary, entitled “One More Day,” is supported by the Newfoundland Independent Filmmaker’s Co-Operative (NIFCO) under its First Time Film Maker Program. It documents the experiences of a woman Correctional Officer – Lisa Snook – who worked for 25 years in Corrections and retired from Her Majesty’s Penitentiary for men in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. It follows her on her last day of work as she reflects on the gendered interactions between correctional officers, prison management and inmates, and the coping strategies that she developed at a young age. It highlights her competence and dedication to her job, but also some of the challenges she encountered during her time there, her concern for inmates, and how she found the strength to go to work everyday in this harsh environment. She describes how the environment was made so much harsher to her as a woman by the intransigence of prison management and how she fought this style of management.
