TEATRO PENITENCIARIO-LIBERTAD DESDE LA SOMBRA/PRISON THEATRE-LIBERTY IN THE DARK
IN PERSON: JORGE CORREA, DIRECTOR/PRODUCERS CARLOS GONZÁLEZ AND PABLO RAMÍREZ
Jorge Correa was named the “Father of Mexican Prison Theatre” by UNESCO. For the past 35 years he has devoted himself to teaching drama inside more than 400 jails. From the vibrant streets of Mexico City to the dark rooms of prisons, the film navigates Correa’s personal journey as a witness to the 1968 Tlatelolco massacre, a performer with an anti drug use message, and a teacher to men and women serving time. After many years of making and defining prison theatre, Jorge Correa reaches his dream of staging a play with ex-inmates allowing them to confront themselves and find an emotional freedom.
