Carpinteros (Woodpeckers)
Dreadlocked and handsome Dominican-Haitian Julián begins a jail sentence for petty theft inside the notorious Najayo prison just outside Santo Domingo. While navigating the indignities, corruption and everyday violence from both guards and fellow inmates, he becomes immersed in the system of "Woodpeckers," the unique sign language the male prisoners use to communicate with women in the adjacent penitentiary just over 400 feet away. Standing in windows or out in prison yards, love - and heated liaisons - blossom. Julián's entanglement with one female inmate, Yanelly, is the fuse that ignites the events of Carpinteros, which was shot on location at the actual prison using real inmates for all but the lead roles.
