There are desires that neither prison nor torture inhibit: freedom and justice. There are reasons that keep us whole even in extreme situations of pain and humiliation: friendship and solidarity. The film features unpublished reports by ex-president Dilma Rousseff and her former cellmates from the Prison Tiradentes, in São Paulo, resulting in a collective exercise of memory by women who believe that resisting is still the only way to remain free .


Screening of the film “Torre das Donzelas” by Susanna Lira and conversation with the director.

The conversation will be shared, in the next days, on the Museum’s official Facebook.
