Where they need to stand

15 October 2019

Special screening of Dove bisogna stare + Q&A with director Daniele Gaglianone.

Dove bisogna stare (Where they need to stand) is a touching, must-see documentary about four Italian women from different backgrounds who put themselves on the frontline welcoming migrants in Italy. Lorena, a pensioner from Pordenone in the Friuli Venezia-Giulia region, does everything she can to help migrants who are hiding in temporary shelters; Elena, in a neighbouring town, shelters a boy who has crossed the border barefoot in the snow; Jessica is one of the leaders of the Rialzo community centre in Cosenza, Calabria; in Como, Elena provides essential information to newly arriving migrants.

Join us for a special film night organised by FILL Festival in partnership with CinemaItaliaUK, in one of the most iconic movie theatres in the UK. Following the screening and the Q&A there will be a reception with free Italian food and wine.

Language of the screening: Italian, with English subtitles.
Language of the Q&A: in English and Italian with English translation provided.
