Synopsis:  Directed and written by Marc Kornblatt, DOSTOEVSKY BEHIND BARS, documents university graduate students and prison inmates who meet weekly to discuss world literature and share personal essays and stories. A homage to the power of the humanities and the art of teaching, these sessions explode the stereotypes of brutish convicts, callous prison staff and out of touch scholars.
