– 16 October 2018: Fuga per la libertà (Escape to Freedom, Emanuela Gasbarroni, 2018)
Synopsis: In the mid-1960s, Emanuela’s family hosted some refugees who had fled from Eastern Europe and were living in a refugee camp in Latina, 70 km south of Rome. In her house, there are still many photos and letters from that time and Emanuela decides to start looking for those people. What has become of their lives, and what they remember of that period of transition from the East to the West? After many years they make a painful journey into their past, remembering the pursuit of freedom, coming back to the refugee camp, meeting the people who worked there and finding many documents in the archives: photographs, cards, numbers and letters.
With the coordination of Infallible London and with thanks to FilmItalia – Istituto Luce.
