Emergency Exit: Young Italians Abroad

Produced by Officinema Doc srls

Emergency Exit is a documentary about Italy and the consequences that the last 20 years of politics have had on the young generation: in fact, thousands of young Italians leave their country every year; more then 70% of them are college graduates or professionally trained. Almost forced to leave Italy due to high unemployment rate (over 46% of young population) and very precarious job conditions, in spite of their studies and merits, they choose to move, living in a deep contrast between the desire to keep better opportunities in a global scenario and the strong attachment to their homeland’s roots and traditions. Emergency Exit is the first, multi-awarded documentary narrating their stories of “ordinary separation” directly on place.

Followed by a Q&A with:
Brunella Filì, director and producer
Beth di Santo, executive producer
The protagonists of the documentary in NYC
