A film to be told

March 16-24, 2012 / Florence, Exfila connessioni metropolitane

“To be told” is a project conceived as an exercise in observation and analysis of the plurality that characterizes the European Union. It is an intellectual and creative exercise dedicated to the comprehension of the relationships between hegemonic and minority cultures: these relationships, always involving terms like exchange and negotiation, find in the permeability the tools for the cultural transformations, their only natural chance for preservation. In a Grundtvig Workshop held in Florence in March 2012, twenty citizens expressing minority groups within the EU, or witnessing stories and assets at risk of disappearance, narrate and share their stories and translate them into creative expressions.
