Carandiru (2003) is a Brazilian and Argentine film directed by Hector Babenco. It is based on the book Estação Carandiru (English: Carandiru Station) by Dr. Drauzio Varella, a physician and AIDS specialist.
Carandiru tells some of the stories that occurred in Carandiru Penitentiary, which was the biggest prison in Latin America. The story culminates with the [October 2] 1992 massacre where 111 prisoners died, 102 killed by police. The film was the last thing the prison was used for before it was demolished in 2002, one year before the release of the film.
I thought i was the only person on the planet to have seen this movie. I got it for 2 dollars at a closing block buster.
