Film Series on Migration, Inclusion and Diversity: Olha’s Italian Diary by Olena Fedyuk

Thursday 1 March, 19:00 Emeroteca, Badia Fiesolana

Screening in the presence of the film Director, followed by a discussion and cocktail.

The Migration Policy Centre, along with the EU Border Care project, is hosting a film series aiming at engaging with documentary and fiction films relevant to research themes on migration, inclusion and diversity.

The film series, open to the EUI community, will focus on themes such as gender and migration, the far right, border control, border crossing and citizenship. Each film screening will be followed by discussion with either the film director or the wider EUI Community, providing an opportunity to exchange ideas and work with other academics across the EUI.

Olha’s Italian Diary

Olha is a migrant woman whose life is packed with turning points enough to fill up a few soap operas and yet, it is so similar to the lives of many women of such background – Ukrainian care workers in Italy. 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: the intimate lives of the female migrants away from home.
