Prison Town, USA is a 2007 documentary film about Susanville, California, a small, rural town that tries to resuscitate its economy by building a prison. The film follows four men, their families, and how they react to the new institution: Lonnie Tyler, a prisoner, Dawayne Brasher and Gabe Jones, guards, and Mike O'Kelly, a dairyman threatened by how the prison could affect the community's buy-local policy.[1]

Prison Town, USA was written, produced, and directed by Katie Galloway and Po Kutchins and was aired as part of the P.O.V. series on PBS.
