Synopsis

Sidi, a 13 years old Tuareg from the Sahara desert, emigrated with his family from Niger to industrial northern Italy, leaving his youngest brother, Alkassoum in Africa with the grandfather. Sidi now speaks Italian, goes to school and is thinking about becoming a journalist. Alkassoum is still tending goats in the village and imagines his family in Italy have become rich and even white. Finally, Alkassoum is also allowed to move to Italy. The film follows Sidi and his family in their modern Italian lives, and visit Alkassoum, left behind in their desert village. It quickly becomes clear how big the gulf is between the countries, on all fronts. Because Sidi has a lot of questions about this, he borrows the camera to interview members of his family and Italians on the street. He asks clever questions about immigration and gets honest answers. “When I’m behind the camera, everyone respects me” - a feeling that the ambitious young man certainly doesn’t always get. He used to be very impressed with all aspects of Italy, but he has now moderated this view: “Now that I know this world, I miss mine.” Nevertheless, this documentary by Fabio Caramaschi, made with the help of Sidi, is above all a positive, inspirational film about change, family reunion and new opportunities.
