Final Movie "Heimat"
The Final Movie "Heimat", which can be translated as the place where a person feel at home, has been premiered in Turin during the partnership meeting of February 15th. The movie represents a collective story of migration to the partner territories, highlighting the positive effects and success stories thanks to the contribution of all partners in order to meet with local non-EU nationals (in total almost 70 people).
Heimat narrates migration as a human experience of subversion of the socio-relational and spatial matrices of origin. Because migrating to another country implies a wealth of memories to be re-placed in a new space, in which to live, configuring new psycho-spatial maps of one's experiences. Living in a new country is a mixture of memories, different languages, more or less cut roots, the need for protection and a family. Going through change - intrinsic to migration - in the name of an existential path that can be defined as vital only if it involves the acceptance of loss and the creation of new places of the heart in which to smile, face one's fears, shed tears for the past and generate dreams of the future.
Directed by Alessandro Ingaria.
