Sciesopoli, un luogo della memoria, Enrico Grisanti

A very special story in a unique place; through some short testimonials,
this documentary tells the story of Sciesopoli, the former fascist colony
of Selvino (BG) that, after the war, housed more than 800 children and young Jews, survived the concentration camps. A story primarily told through images, which wants to attract the viewer’s gaze toward those places, those woods, those rooms and those corridors that were crossed by all these girls and boys who had suffered so much in the previous years and who were trying to make sense
of themselves and their own existence probably right there.

We cannot go there now my Dear, Carol Mansour
Lebanon 2014, 42’,
Arabic with Italian and English subtitles

Palestinian refugees have been living
in Syria since they had been forced to flee Palestine in 1948. As the Syrian crisis intensifies, they alongside the Syrians have been affected by the war. Their story, however, is more complex. By fleeing Syria and seeking refuge in Lebanon they are becoming a special category of refugees: they are refugees twice over. As Palestinians they are not entirely welcome in Lebanon.
As refugees, their travel documents are not recognized. As Palestinians, this is the second time they lose everything and find themselves
once more homeless and stateless. This documentary film tells part
of the story of those twice-over refugees. A story where memories were awakened between one exodus and the other, and where loss invades all things striking the very self.
A story where the causes and consequences are known, but not the closure. A story where lives
are continuously being rebuilt and improvised awaiting the return.
