In 1905, Munù’s grandparents left Caluso to settle in the province of Buenos Aires. One hundred years later, she presented the town with a painting that recalls the sacrifices made by emigrants, past, present and future.

Equal Voices (Ita, 2007, col., 7’) Vittoria Castagneto
The main characters, three men and two women, represent four areas of immigration: Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Latin America. The film plays on the particularities of the characters’ mother tongues in order to render the identity of asylum applicants and refugees living in Europe more real.

Troops arrive on the scene and grab a young boy and bundle him into the jeep. Then a voice cries “STOP”. Thank goodness, it’s all part of a film! Two women pause. They know what it’s all about because they’ve actually been through that nightmare.

Lei non sa chi sono io (Ita, 2006, col., 35’) Barbara Iacampo, Federico Cattai
The personal stories of asylum seekers remind us that political asylum is an inalienable right and help us to understand the difficulties refugees contend with.
