In the sign of Justice | Ikos: the denunciation of the director Giuseppe Sciarra
The hell of bullying lived through clips of family VHS and performance art by the Apulian director, who from an early age had to deal with a harsher reality than expected. Indicted as homosexual by his peers in a southern village in the province of Foggia, a real witch hunt of which he was a victim by children and adults. As the director himself reports:
I was hated in the village for what I was and I was forced to hide and never leave the house. I didn’t tell my parents anything about what was happening. I was ashamed. With them I pretended that everything was fine but every day I was dying inside.
Ikos is dedicated to all children who are victims of bullying, with the aim of do justice towards those who have lost their lives and whose cases have ended up in oblivion, leaving a trauma and an indelible void for too long.
