“From Love no one Escapes” is a documentary that portrays the interior of a Brazilian prison where a humanized system of incarceration, known as APAC, allows the absence of prison guards and weapons. After becoming volunteers in prison and residing for more than a month under the semi-open regime, the documentarists recorded the daily life behind bars, inviting prisoners and employees of APAC to open their hearts and share their stories and perceptions about life. The documentary mostly consists of informal conversations that portray different aspects of the lives of incarcerated individuals, such as spirituality, family life, work, music and the desire for freedom. Through deep conversations, “From Love no one Escapes” investigates the irrefutable role of love in the recovery and resocialization of human beings that have committed all kinds of crimes. The film aims to offer solid and palpable arguments in defence of a more compassionate and humanistic approach to prison.
