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. Participants, most convicted of murder, grappled with crimes and culpability in 15 painful self-portraits.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
