Rosarno. AutoritrattiUmbria in celluloide - PerSo 2016
by Andrea Nevi, Italy, 2016 25′
Seven young men and women from Rosarno (Italy) talk about their daily life in a place around town which best represents them. A park, a square, their school gym, the countryside, their backyard and social networks all contribute to draw a physical and virtual map of town; a space collecting life stories, crisscrossed by roads and relationships and dotted by buildings and feelings. Despite their physical and mental disabilities and the complex social fabric of this beautiful part of Calabria (Southern Italy) on the Mediterranean Sea, these young men and women tell their powerful story to the camera with a serene mind. After independently choosing its contents and setting, they are thus both actors and co-authors.
