After the Odyssey, documentary by Helen Doyle

(85 min. With English subtitles | Production : Tatouages de la mémoire | Distribution : SPIRA)

After a Dantean journey, women from Nigeria arrive alone and ever younger in Italy, looking for a better life. Such horrors as human trafficking and sexual slavery are waiting for them, as we discover in this ensemble film featuring harrowing stories told in a sensible way that spares us from the unbearable. These tales provoke a broader reflection on migration and otherness.
