Out of Competition - Documentary

Interdit aux chiens et aux Italiens

By Alain Ughetto

It is a work of intimate memory that is carried out by Alain Ughetto as he dives into family testimonies recalling the life of is grandparents Luigi and Cesira. Told by the latter and modelled by the director, the crossing of the Alps by this Italian working class family echoes the experience of many migrants in Europe. Ughetto pays tribute to the manual skills and transalpine identity passed down by his grandfather and shaped by the many historical upheavals of the time. His story is that of hundreds of thousands of Italians who left their homeland to settle in France, Switzerland, Belgium and many other countries.
