Sunday, September 24, 3:45pm. Actor Jean Jean will be in-person following the screening for a Q&A!
Julián finds love and a reason for living in the last place imaginable: the Dominican Republic's Najayo Prison. His romance, with fellow prisoner Yanelly, must defeat the distance that separates them by using a sign language created by the inmates in Najayo, called "Woodpecking," enabling them to effectively communicate and develop personal and even intimate relationships without the knowledge of dozens of guards. Using real prison locations and non-actors throughout, Woodpeckers is also based on real events.
