Director statement

“In Turin, I happened to note groups of school children gathered around entranceways, as though they were taking part in a rite. After they went away, what remained on the ground was a bronze stone surrounded by fresh cement, set in the shadow of the broad-brimmed hat of the artist Gunter Demnig. A small, indelible tribute to the people who crossed that threshold one last time before disappearing into the Nazi-Fascist death machine. We wanted to recount the students’ encounter with these traces of life, the pathway to explore them, to really know them, to recount them. And the emotion of the families of the deportees, who brought their loved ones back home. Thanks to a stone with a name engraved in it.”
