Torre das Donzelas

Susanna Lira / Brazil / 97 ′ / Documentary / 2018


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 The film features unpublished reports by ex-president Dilma Rousseff and her former cellmates from the Prison Tiradentes, in São Paulo, resulting in a collective exercise of memory by women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.

Mandatory registration to: or +351 215 818 535.
