Saturday Short

Today's Saturday Short is about a group of inmates in a Philippine jail, Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, who are featured in dance sequences in the film Dance of the Steel Bars (Portfolio Films). Directed by Cesar Apolinaro, the movie, about an American wrongly accused of murder and jailed in the Philippines, is based on real events at the prison. It was released earlier this summer.

On YouTube, the video has been viewed tens of millions of times.
