Nera - Not the Promised Land

Nera - Non è la terra promessa
by Andrea Deaglio Documentary Italia/Italy 2007 22'

The sad story of a Nigerian woman lured to Italy with promises of a better life but subjected to violence, crime and poverty when forced to earn her livelihood by selling her body on streets out somewhere in the provinces. Her marriage to an elderly man seems to save her from subjection and misery: a new life awaits her with a poorly paid factory job. A sequel to Nera, Welcome to my World (2007), this personal portrait painted in delicate strokes reveals a hidden world where immigration and marginalization go side by side.<%YOUTUBE=gekBWxBZfBM%>
