MAIDEN’S TOWER brings surprising never seen before accounts from former president Dilma Rousseff and her former cellmates from Tiradentes prison in São Paulo. They were imprisoned together in the 70’s at the Maiden’s Tower, name used to refer to the female cells in the prison. The film recreates from fragments of memory of each one of them, a film set that resembles the space in which they were incarcerated together.
