Synopsis

Babies From Talavera is a documentary in the making by filmmakers Gustavo Gelmini and Patricia Maresch.
The documentary will show the life of young mothers and their newborn babies in a special section of a women’s prison in Rio de Janeiro. The mothers are allowed to keep their newborns with them for six months. After that, the baby is either sent to family or given up for adoption.
Talavera Baby addresses maternity, jail, justice, confinement and guilt, but above all the bond between mothers and their newborns and their longings, losses, joys, survival, hopes and regrets.
