Film Synopsis

Olha is a migrant woman from Ukraine working as a care worker in Italy. Unlike many of women in the similar situation – middle-aged, away from home, working often illegally and long hours looking after elderly people – Olha does not forget about herself. She believes in love and thinks it is possible to find a beautiful romantic relationship even at the age of 57. Even if the relationships between migrant women and local men are considered to be a transgression on both sides. Olha’s Italian Diary is a work in progress, a film which aims to break away from the “separation with the family” focus in transnational migration. It is an intimate sneak-peek into one of the contemporary taboo topics: intimate lives of the female migrants away from home.

Time: 19.00
Place: Emeroteca, Badia Fiesolana, EUI.
