Is my place here? Living as refugees in Italy
12 December 2023

by Andrea Fantino, Italy, 2021, 87′

Synopsis

6 characters, 3 locations, one country: Italy. From North to South, from Cuneo to Castel Volturno, passing through Rome, “Is my place here?” collects the testimonies of refugees from sub-Saharan Africa that share their life path, conditioned by the precariousness of the Italian and European reception system. “Luck” and “will” – cornerstones within which to move one’s steps, according to one of the documentary’s protagonists – seem to dissolve in a time made of mobility and constraints, where institutions often do not help and inclusion in a new society is often in the care of individuals able to make a difference, or in the possibility of becoming political subjects in all respects, giving rise to a fight to conquer their spaces and their rights.

The documentary was created in the context of TRAFIG, and managed by partner organisation FIERI – Forum Internazionale ed europeo di ricerche sull’immigrazione. Along with the documentary maker, it has seen researchers Pietro Cingolani, Milena Belloni and Giuseppe Grimaldi at work.
