Penal Cordillera

A film by Felipe Carmona

The five most cruel torturers in Pinochet’s dictatorship are serving for more than 800 years in a luxury prison right below the Andes. When the government tells them that they will be moved, they will do everything in their hands to stay put, unraveling the delirium and the violence among the mountains. Based on the real story.
