Unlearning is a family driven documentary, telling the true story – definitely NOT from an objective point of view – of a not extraordinary family: Mum (an anxiously teacher on salary-freeze), dad (a TV director sick of unsatisfactory repetitive formats) and daughter (a 5 year old girl, simply at the mercy of the events) Their city-background collided with vegan eco-villages, hippies gatherings, “hostels” arranged in caves or in caravan parks, libertarian schools and even anarchist communes. They had to clean stalls, dismantled circus tents and even joined the Freegan community, while recovering “expired” food from the containers located outside the markets and malls.

A Q&A with the film director, Lucio Basadonne, will follow the screening. 

Screened within the section SUSTAINABLE AND SOLIDARITY ECONOMY, in partnership with Terra Mileniul III.
