Video Documentary

The documentary film follows the stories of the artists involved in the project together with doctoral students, male and female prisoners, during the workshops held in the Pagliarelli, Ucciardone, Malaspina penitentiary institutes in Palermo, and Sollicciano in Florence. Through these interactions, the value of the shared gesture emerged, of creativity at the service of communication between apparently distant worlds, between human beings with different origins and experiences, who manage to establish a relationship based on the awareness that art can represent the most effective tool to overcome barriers and preconceptions that the collective imagination attributes to the prison context. The work also documents the genesis and development of the GAP project, in its scientific, artistic and social implications, and in the proposition of a new
way of rethinking university teaching, based on alternative forms of knowledge and study, through an empathetic and open to the involvement of other realities, with the aim of encouraging participation within new inclusive dynamics towards those who live in conditions of deprivation and hardship.
The documentary film has been invited at the SOLE LUNA DOC FILM FESTIVAL
