Susan Sarandon narrates this documentary about the inhabitants of the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women, a prison for women that houses female offenders ranging from minimum-security cases to women who have been sentenced to death and await execution.
Director Laleh Khadivi interviews a number of inmates and captures a wide range of perspectives on how these women ended up behind bars, what their lives were like before they were incarcerated, how life in prison has affected them for good or ill, and how they cope with their present as they try to plan a better future. 900 Women was shown at the 2001 San Francisco Independent Film Festival.
