Aly Muritiba (Brazil) for the film
A gente (C(us)todians)
Hazardous, unpredictable, stressful and uncertain, the filmmaker is so close to the characters that he provides a real sense of belonging, an insider view of the struggle to manage a challenging and potentially explosive work environment. Underfunded, under-resourced and over-worked, the caretakers and custodians are constantly fire-fighting. As the film unfolds through its strong observation, unique access to its characters, distressing sounds and a colour palette to match the shades of grey inside the prison, the main protagonist becomes our guiding “Guardian Angel”.
