Modelo Prison, Barcelona, 1977. Although the dictatorial regime in Spain had already fallen, political prisoners seemed to have been forgotten. Prison 77 immerses itself in the Spanish penal system precisely during that turbulent period of newfound freedom. In the film, young Manuel, an accountant accused of embezzling an amount equivalent to today’s 1200 euros, is sentenced to an excessive 20-year prison term. He becomes the leader of a movement that unites all prisons in the fight for freedom and the transformation of prison laws, forever altering Spanish society.


Alberto Rodríguez was born in Seville, Spain, in 1971. He studied photography and sound at the University of Seville and worked as a TV producer. His short film Bancos (2000) achieved great success at the San Sebastian Festival. Since then, he has directed several feature films and received several nominations for the Goya Award for the film 7 Virgins (2005). He won two Goya Awards – Best Director and Best Screenplay – for the film Marshland (2014).
