Ciudadela

Documentary
by Diego Mondaca

Germany/Bolivia 2011, color, HD, 48

Citadel captures, through a technique of apparent explosive disorder, the disturbing and mysterious place of the male prison in La Paz, Bolivia.

The film attempts to expose life inside the detention facility which does not adhere to the traditional icons of prison as some inmates’ wives and children live alongside the prisoners.
