The Key Area MIS invites you to a public film screening on 1 March 2017 at 4 p.m. With Giacomo Zandonini in attendance, we will be showing the documentary by Marcello Merletto Wallah – Je te jure (2016) which tells the story of the men and women who travel the West African migratory routes to Italy. The film was produced by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and takes us into the villages of Senegal, via bus stations and ghettos in Niger overrun by drug trafficking, to Italy. The migrants are willing to pay whatever price to reach Europe – Wallah. However, some portrayals show people who are tired of the hardship and returning home. The discussion offers an opportunity for exchange with one of the filmmakers.
