POENA

Documentary (2016)

In Production

IDEA

POENA is a feature documentary about the effects of solitary confinement in European prisons, based on a comparison between the case of Raquel, a woman who committed suicide after 9 months in segregation in a Spanish prison, and the open regime in Norway.

As the film goes further searching for answers, a hidden tragedy is revealed: the European system not only forces people with mental disorders to be in isolation, but also deprives them of the necessary treatment.

This documentary is supported by:

  • World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) - Geneva, Switzerland
  • International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) - Copenhague, Denmark
  • Dignity, Danish Institute Against Torture - Copenhague, Denmark

* Original music by: Danilo Giagkis

** Norwegian footage is property of: ZDF, Gughi Fassino and Emmanuela Zuccala
