Imprisoned Lullaby / Ninna Nanna Prigioniera

ImprisonedLullaby_hauptmotiv

Jasmina is a strong 24 year old girl, who lives is in prison in Turin for a robbery committed four years ago. She has been awaiting her trial for several months. But Jasmina is also mother to three children, including two infants who live in prison alongside her on a daily basis.
The film captures Jasmina and her two children in real time, as months go by, during their moments of hope and despair. Their most insignificant gestures such as meals, bath-time, walks along the prison corridor reveal the dilemma which every mother would be confronted with in such a situation: to raise her children in prison, or to set them free for an indeterminate length of time, without her?
