In the UK, knife crime among the young population has been escalating in the past few years, making headlines in the media. In Italy, adolescents living in neighbourhoods controlled by crime organisations like the Camorra in Naples have to face a dangerous reality in their everyday lives. In the final panel discussion of FILL 2019, two extraordinary voices discuss what lies at the root of youth crime, the impact of different contexts on the lives of young people, and the self-representation of teenagers enabled by technology and new media – in a dialogue between journalism and cinema, London and Naples.
This event will be in English and partly in Italian with English translation provided.
Running time: 80 minutes.
