CIUDADELA captura, a través de una técnica de aparente desorden explosivo, la cárcel de San Pedro, lugar inquietante y misterioso situado en medio de la ciudad de La Paz, Bolivia. Documental que intenta mostrar la vida y cotidiano en el interior del centro de detención, un espacio que no sigue los íconos tradicionales de cárcel y además, donde conviven las esposas e hijos de algunos internos. A pesar de la marginación física y el prejuicio punitivo que se cierne sobre los presos y sus familias, esta convivencia única junto a la arquitectura de vivienda construye una comunidad. -- Situated high up in the Bolivian capital of La Paz, the San Pedro Prison is a bustling city within a city. It has its own church, soccer field, dental practice, shops, workshops, and carnival parades. Around 2,500 people are packed into San Pedro, but by no means are all of them prisoners: the spirited Mechita and her son keep their husband and father company – and they are not the only ones. The people of San Pedro give all the appearance of self-sufficiency, but the outside world beyond the high prison walls is a constant temptation. Their lives could have been far more wretched than this, but there is still a glimmer of hope and the lure of freedom.
