Badanti

Who are the "badanti"? Women from east europe who take care the italian (not only) old people, the grandparents of the family.
Six women tell their story, their life, their experiences. Six interviews, intertwined, telling a common but different story.

This project started as a presentation work at the UNATC University in Bucharest during my six month Erasmus, and finished as a complete short documentary.
