It is about children under three years of age living in prison together with their mothers, in a separate part of the penitentiary. It deals with the necessity of mother and child of being together, in order to promote a reciprocal attachment and to avoid separation during the first years, but on the other hand, this means that there children are forced to live in an institution. It has been shot in the prison of San Vittore in Milan. The video follows the path of two children from the nursery of the prison to the outside, where volunteers take them for few hours every day. The children are filmed from behind with a handheld camera, held low, through various areas of the prison. The way of filming, the lowered point of view, the “de-centred”, the light and theme of the marginal, are a constant in my research.Some time after this video was shot, in Milan has been founded Icam, a children’s home where convicts’ sons and daughters live with their mother and attend public nursery school in the neighborhood.This is my second video about the relationship between people and institutions.
