Synopsis: Two men who were formerly incarcerated together recreate a prison meal exactly as they made it inside. Cooking Inside explores America’s cruel and broken prison system through the humanity of food.
Adrian Drepaul, our main subject, said he wanted to tell the story of his incarceration in a way that felt human, hopeful, and lighthearted – not the downer sob story people expect to hear from a former incarcerated person. By telling his and Cazzie’s story through the food they made together inside, I believe we achieved that goal.
