The Making of Justice is a movie about seven prisoners working on the scenario for a crime film together with Sarah Vanhee. Like the main character in the film they are making up, they are all guilty of murder. To shape the story, they draw on their own experiences, ideas and desires. We, the viewers, can only guess whether they are using fiction as a means of confirming, transcending or transforming their present situation. In the course of the film they discuss criminality as a parallel reality, what the nature of justice is, and what a society would be like if it was oriented towards healing rather than retribution. ‘The justice system is not synonymous with justice itself. The justice system means the application of rules, but justice is a human capacity’, says one of the men. The image of ‘the criminal’ is always elusive, both in terms of form (because the lens always remains out of focus) and content, because the authors and their character appear first as people and only then as offenders.

The Making of Justice is Sarah Vanhee’s first film. She is an artist that PuSh has been interested for many years. Her film is paired with Inside/Out (Neworld Theatre), a work written and performed by Patrick Keating about hs real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s penitentiary system.
