The island of the forgotten

A documentary about Ilha Grande, formerly a prison island, where until 1994 the most feared jailhouse stood. The highly poetic documentary revolves around the fate of the island’s residents, who at the time of the penitentiary were confronted with a continuous strict regulation and now have to “put up with” being free.
