VA’ PENSIERO (2013, 58”) by Dagmawi Yimer and A SUD DI LAMPEDUSA (SOUTH OF LAMPEDUSA, 2006, 28”) by Andre Segre in collaboration with Stefano Liberti.
UCSD Faculty Club Atkinson Pavilion
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Reception - Light Refreshments and No-Host Bar
4:00 PM – 6:00 PM Movies and discussion with directors.
Stories of immigration, work, and tragedy blend in these works by Ethiopian-Italian Yimer and filmmaker Andre Segre and journalist Stefano Liberti.
Và pensiero begins on May 31, 2011. A right wing extremist kills Sam Modu and Diop Mor, and wound other Senegalese men as they work among the stands of the market in Piazza Dalmazia, Florence. Among them are Mor Sougou and Cheik Mbeng who, for the first time in this film, retell the events of that day. This film takes on the straight-forward yet difficult task of bringing to the light an often well hidden reality.
South of Lampedusa, shot in May in the Sahara desert, shows immigration’s hidden face before it arrives at the last stop in Lampedusa. It documents the harsh journeys and testimonies of migrant workers arrested in Libya and abandoned on the Nigerian borders.
The three directors will participate in a discussion and Q & A conducted by Professors Pasquale Verdicchio and Clarissa Clò.
