#RomaFF14 | The second edition of “Io mi riprendo”
Wednesday, October 23rd, at 10 am
“Io mi riprendo” (I record myself) – training in audiovisual media for teenagers in criminal detention, now in its second edition, is a project supported by Fondazione Cinema per Roma in collaboration with Arci Solidarietà Onlus, Roberto Rossellini Technical Institute in Rome and Juvenile Justice Centre for the Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise regions. It involved ten boy and girls between the ages of 14 and 19 currently in custody. The initiative arose as part of the project “A Key to the Future” funded by the Tavola Valdese and finalized towards creating pathways for social inclusion, and educational and employment opportunities for minors and young people at risk or already caught within the criminal justice system. This year again, the course has become an important opportunity for education and rehabilitation for the young beneficiaries, in a programme of inclusion and cultural expression, which has become a place to start from or start over, and provides the expressive tools they need to produce an alternative story of their history or their lives. The educational process has been a stimulating experience for the kids, as they acquire the technical understanding of a job, and make a product that can open a window onto the complexity of the adolescent world. The project and the results will be presented at the Rome Film Fest.
