What does it feel like to trek overland across Africa, risk the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean and then find oneself stuck in limbo in the Sardinian countryside? This is the dilemma En Route explores with two groups of young African men who find life in Europe rather different from what they’d expected. Forced to adjust to a new life somewhere that feels more like back home than the bright lights big city life that they had dreamed of. Focusing on the everyday life, the travel stories, the desires and aspirations of young migrants, this immersive documentary sensitively reveals another side of the migration dilemma.
Directors Gaetano Crivano and Margherita Pisano will introduce the screening.
