Interno italiano (short-doc, 14′)

At the beginning of December 2020, the EMERGENCY NGO medical staff entered inside the Covid-2 ward of the San Giovanni di Dio Hospital in Crotone.
The camera, staying away from voyeurism and the apology of heroism, repeatedly crosses the threshold of the Covid-2 department, questioning the relationship between the inside, what we can or must see, and the outside, the relationship with the world.

The Cameroon Civil War (2020, 8′)

In Anglophone regions, violence intensified as government forces conducted large-scale security operations and armed separatists carried out increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Over 3,000 civilians and hundreds of security forces personnel have been killed in the Anglophone regions since 2016, when the crisis started. The unrest in these regions led to the displacement of over half-a-million people.

Gunmen stormed a private school in Cameroon’s Anglophone South-West region on October 24, 2020, killing 7 children and injuring at least 13 others.

Thousands of videos have been uploaded on the web but don’t reach international attention.

The reportage was pulished on italian television channel Tv2000.

Covid19. Campo 87

As Italy emerges from coronavirus COVID-19 catastrophe, families try to recover loved ones from a lonely grave.

So small are the plastic white crosses, from a distance they’re barely visible.

But a closer look reveals they are part of a field of recently dug graves, not far from the centre of one of Italy’s largest and most sophisticated cities.

Each cross has a name and a plot number on it.

In a section of the Maggiore cemetery in Milan, 128 victims of COVID-19 were buried at the height of the first wave of the pandemic.

Moise and the earthquake

Moise was 4yo when he lost his left leg due to the earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010. Ten years later, the summer holidays are drawing to a close. Moise, his parents and his younger brother Sonel lived in the Mariani district, on the western side of Port-au-Prince.
The walls and roof of their modest home are made of corrugated iron. The family lost everything due to the earthquake. Without the house, which collapsed with the earthquake, they moved to a peripheral area of ​​the capital. But luckily they all survived.
This is the story of that day, 10 years ago.
