88 Days - Lavazza Italian Film Festival 2016 @ Palace Norton Street

Description:

This local documentary follows the stories of various young Italian migrant workers as they work in farms across rural Australia in order to obtain a further year in their working holiday visa. Under reciprocal agreements with nineteen countries, Australia allows travellers aged between eighteen and thirty to live and work here for up to a year, with the possibility of a second twelve-month visa if they undertake at least eighty-eight days of “specified work” (in agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining or construction) in a regional area. This film explores the work and life of young migrant Italians who have chosen this path and their lives after the experience. Please join screenwriter Michele Grigoletti and researcher Silvia Pianelli for a spirited discussion about the emigration of young Italians to Australia.
