A raw, moving portrait of motherhood and mutual aid in a Chilean prison, captured by inmates on banned mobile phones. Testimonies from mothers serving long sentences shape a collaborative narrative touching on ways in which friendship, intimacy, resilience and community bloom in conditions of impossibility.
Malqueridas is a generative example of the documentary form and a powerful contribution towards the case for abolition.
