Playwright Eve Ensler guides viewers into the hearts of female prisoners in unique performances by Mary Alice, Glenn Close, Hazelle Goodman, Rosie Perez, and Marisa Tomei. An outgrowth of Ensler's workshop at Bedford Hills Correctional Center, WHAT I WANT MY WORDS TO DO TO YOU is a no-holds-barred revelation of terrifying reality.

Made me want to read/see more

Comments about PBS P.O.V.: What I Want My Words to Do to You DVD:

Surprising? I didn't expect to be so moved, that the women would be so thoughtful and honest and sorry - I don't know what I expected. But to hear through their own words what it's like to be there, where they are in life and in jail, is transformational. I was hoping to use this in school, the power of words and writing. Probably higher level high school kids could appreciate. Thanks for this program. Way to go Eve Ensler!

What Their Words Did To Me

Comments about PBS P.O.V.: What I Want My Words to Do to You DVD:

This documentary profoundly changed my point of view on criminals. It was one of the most powerful things I have ever seen in my life.

I think it is something everyone should see. It will move you. It moved me. I found myself in tears over it. It is simply a "must see."

the power of the written word

By Jan at Stillpoint

from Halibut Cove, AK

Comments about PBS P.O.V.: What I Want My Words to Do to You DVD:

A powerful film showing the value of group, honesty, and journeling. I will never assume I know anything about those who .have been imprisoned by our society
