Description

Julián finds love and a reason for living in the last place imaginable: the Dominican Republic’s Najayo Prison. He ‘meets’ Yanelly from across the prison yard and manages to learn a kind of sign language to communicate with her and avoiding the prison guards. Using real prison locations and non-actors throughout, WOODPECKERS is based on real events. Premiered at Sundance.
