Ivan is a young Brazilian delinquent going through a probationary programme. An electronic shackle controls his location, but not his thoughts.
Premiered at the prestigious DOK Leipzig festival in 2017, the debut feature from director Pedro Rocha offers an impressive, slow-burning look at post-jail life in modern day Brazil. How can an ex-convict adapt again to the real world? Or is it the latter that ought to make the first step?
