18 Ius Soli
(the law of blood)
2012 Award winning grassroots Italian documentary about the issue of the citizenship for 1.000.000 children born in Italy.
This documentary examines the law that denies citizenship to young people born in Italy of immigrant parents, because they have “no Italian blood”.
18 Ius Soli follows 18 stories of girls and boys born and raised in Italy and whose parents are originally from African, Asian, and South American countries who moved to and have long-lived in different areas of Italy.
Discussion and pizza with Italian director and producer Fred Kuwornu.
