The filmmakers use irregular, dismembered mannequins as a visual representation of the extreme alienation and objectification experienced by refugees. What object could represent you and your experience? Is it a stuffed animal? A utensil? Consider arranging the object in relation to other objects to tell more of the story. Take a photo.

Meet the Filmmaker
ABOUT THE FILMMAKER
Fabio Palmieri was born in Naples, Italy. He graduated summa cum laude from the National Fine Art School, with a graduation thesis on Stanley Kubrick and a degree in painting. Since 2008, he has worked as a director and in 2010, he founded NotWorkingFilms, an independent production based in Milan, Italy.
WHY THEY MADE THE FILM
“I believe that movies, even documentaries, are forms of art, they have different and higher purposes than simply to inform you on something. If you need to be updated you already have TV, newspapers and the Internet. I firmly believe in the power of art and that it must go beyond reality.“
