(CARPINTEROS)


2017, Outsider Pictures, 106 min., Dir. José María Cabral

Dreadlocked Dominican-Haitian Julián (Guadalajara International Film Festival Best Actor Jean Jean), begins a jail sentence for petty theft inside the notorious Najayo prison just outside Santo Domingo. While navigating the indignities, corruption, and everyday violence from both guards and fellow inmates, he becomes immersed in the system of "woodpecking," the unique sign language the male prisoners use to communicate with women in the adjacent penitentiary just over 400 feet away. Standing in windows and out in prison yards, love blossoms between Julián and one female inmate, Yanelly (Judith Rodriguez Perez)
