7:00 p.m. One Way, A Tuareg Journey
Fabio Caramaschi (Italy/Niger, 2010)

A young Tuareg child interviews his own family as well as other residents of his Italian town in this clever documentary about family upheaval, immigration, and hope. Armed with a video camera and a spirit of adventure, young Sidi asks various bemused adults pointed questions about immigration and Italy, but it is the discussions with his father, who came first to the country alone, and with his younger brother, who just arrived from a nomadic life in Niger, that are the most revelatory. Through one family’s very particular—yet recognizably universal—experiences, One Way uncovers the ordinary lives and extraordinary journeys of twenty-first-century immigrant communities in Europe today.
