Fondamenta delle convertite
Penelope Bortoluzzi
2008 - Italie/France - Couleur - 117'

One year in Venice women’s prison. Everyday life in the corridors and common spaces of this former monastery overlooking the lagoon. Cells are closed at night but open all day long and a "nursery floor" is devoted to prisoners with children. Inmates from the entire world, together with their children and the wardens must endure permanent promiscuity, each trying to manage their way through wants, friendships, hierarchy, power games and imposed roles.
