La Causa

Run by the inmates themselves, this is one of the most dangerous prisons in Venezuela

La Causa Current and former prisoners give a staggering account of life in this parallel society, and of the search for liberation within it. Five years’ worth of film material (some of it shot with hidden cameras) and interviews show the internal workings of the prison, and the corrupt penitentiary system around it. Above all, La Causa tells the human story of current and former inmates searching for salvation through religion, music and even politics.
