Càsa

Cà·sa

SYNOPSIS

At Villapizzone, Milan, lives a small community of assisted, ten Italians and foreigners men associated by the economic poverty only. Càsa is the story of a night in an homeless shelter, among Razdan's need for escape, Sergio's bitterness and Mateo's strongholds.

NOTES

On April 2016 I started volunteering at the secondary reception centre Casa Mara, managed by Associazione CAST. The focus was to share dinners, nights and breakfasts with the guests of the shelter, searching for the themes that mostly affect their temporary situation. An initially cynical and avid immersion was dilute in time and gave me the chance to lose myself in an always changing reality. It pointed out the dynamics of a community of people who didn't searched for each other,

and unforeseen acts of cure among foreigners, as well as the weight of a planning that seeks only the short term. The episodes forced me to take a side ad the project became a way to contribute to the sustenance of this shelter through a crowdfunding campaign. At the same time I decided to stage these episodes, thinking that a documentary wouldn't help the integration projects of the guests. Càsa is an interpretation of this reality, a project that continues today in the collaboration with Casa Mara.  - Dir. Tommaso Dall’Osso
