ARCI Cineforum – America non c’è

November 18, 2023 @ 18:00 - 22:30

“America non c’è” by Davide Marchesi is a journey through the everyday life and experiences of a group of young Italians of African descendent, in the aftermath of the protests organised in support of the BLM movement in America and the rest of the world.
During the BLM demonstration, held in Milan on 7 June 2020, Freddy is immortalised in a shot that ends up printed on half a page of the Italian newspaper Repubblica. Freddy, the eldest of six siblings, lives with his family in a small village in the province of Lecco. Cobra, Nesi, Samba, Yaka, Geneviève and Pascaline live in the same area. The documentary follows the group during their normal life, revealing what it means to grow up in a society that, for the most part, continues to consider them foreigners and, at best, guests.”
The documentary will be followed by a debate with Ousmane Yaka and Samba Yacine, two of the film’s protagonists.
