 “A documentary that gives imprisoned women a voice while reflecting on the defects of the current Spanish prison system.”

Breathe is a documentary about the female inmates at the penitentiary of Can Brians 1.
The documentary gives a voice to imprisoned women and reflects on the current prison system exploring if the judicial system is favorable to women  from a health care, hygiene and bioethics point of view.
Breathe is committed to a realistic and direct filmmaking process to portrait life in a penitentiary.
How do you live life in the absence of freedom?
The film vindicates these women as the subject of speech because they are often silenced.
