CGiii Comment

In the early 20th century, in Barbacena, Minas Gerais, the Colony Hospital was founded with the aim of treating tuberculosis and psychiatric patients. But, hidden behind those walls was an unsettling reality: for years, men, women, and children were sent on a one-way trip to hell. The place represented the tragic fate of those seen as misfits by society: the poor, homosexuals, pregnant girls, prostitutes, alcoholics, unwanted children. By the early 1980s, thousands had been tortured, raped, and forgotten. About 60,000 died and very few survived.
