Jury Statement: The director makes multifaceted references to past activities of a great Italian North Pole adventurer. However, he also shows current social problem areas. A society regulated from outside struggles to survive culturally and materially. With its impressive images and subtle camera work, this film captivates the viewer. It almost seems as if the film team is not present, and the sensitive dramaturgy makes us invisible witnesses of what is currently happening.
Our documentary Exiles has been selected for this year’s International Freethought Film Festival, and will be screening in Pittsburgh from 20-22 September 2019.
