E – IMMIGRATION REFUGEES
Andrea De Biasi
Istituto Luce Cinecittà – A Buon Diritto
Italy, 2014, 54’, Italian with English subtitles
Like thousands of his peers fleeing from war, Rahell undertook an arduous journey from Middle East to Europe without visas and passports, trying to join a branch of the family living for years in Sweden. Landed in Italy, however, he finds out that the Dublin Regulation, the law that imposes to all refugees to reside in the first EU country they enter, separates him from his destination. Italy for Rahell is nothing more than a land of transit.
