LEGGI QUESTO ARTICOLO IN ITALIANO
On May 2nd, NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò hosted the screening of Emergency Exit: Young Italians Abroad, a “docu-trip” collecting interviews with Italians who have left their homeland in search of job opportunities that were not available where they were raised and educated. Directed by Brunella Filì and co-produced by Beth Di Santo, Emergency Exit debuted in 2014 in Italy. This was the last stop on a U.S. tour, and a particularly successful one: not only was every single seat in the theater taken, but people were standing and the event was streamed to the library upstairs to accommodate all participants. The audience was drawn to this event because they saw something in the documentary that could be a reflection of their own stories and they were interested in a lesser known economic aspect of contemporary Italian society.
