Los Abandonados – Die Niemandskinder von Camanducaia 1984
1h 29m | Drama | West Germany/Mexico 1985
Semi-documentary film about one of those “no man’s children”, the “Abandonados”, whose fate became known in the mid 70s. The orphaned or abandoned children and young people had been deported under inhumane circumstances to a neighboring province by the Brazilian judicial authorities to relieve the overcrowded prisons, where they were abandoned without food or clothing. The specific case described should not be construed as an indictment of an event or a country, but rather as a reminder to work for the welfare of the children of our time.
