LOOSING GROUND, 45min., Italy, Documentary
Directed by Angelo Loy, Martino Mazzonis
"Loosing Ground" recounts the lives of climate refugees in Bangladesh, who every day leave the countryside of the North submerged by increasingly frequent and abundant floods, who abandon the villages of the South where entire crops are destroyed by unpredictable and extremely violent cyclones. The stories of people fleeing the climatic events and their journey to Dhaka, where every day more than a thousand people get off ferries and buses destined to live in the slums, the immense slums of the Bangladeshi capital. Their arrival in the city is not the end of their troubles: here they risk being driven out of the shacks they have just built by building speculation.
