Description

Filmmakers attending.

Rio de Janeiro’s prisons acutely reflect the city’s wider racial and social injustices. But inside some of Rio’s most brutal prisons, Pentecostal practices turn cellblocks into intensely religious places where inmates strive to live moral and dignified lives.

Directors Andrew Johnson and Ryan Patch dive into the social constructs of being an inmate, investigating the motives behind their religion and exploring their journeys from hardened criminal, conversion in prison, and to their release back into society.
