The story of a young Egyptian Muslim in prison, in love with painting and resistant to the fundamentalists, and that of three women of different nationalities, farmers, students and they too imprisoned: two documentaries made inside the Rebibbia prison in which the institution is not just an enforced place of residence, but is transformed into an opportunity for personal and collective redemption.

CINEMA AT MAXXI | 25 January – 29 March 2017

Cinema at MAXXI is back with a range of new features and a programme that is neither a simple film season nor a traditional festival but rather combines diverse traits from both.

The schedules for this edition::
EXTRA major previews
EXHIBIT exhibitions and film
MAXXI DOC new documentary talents

ALICE FAMILY animation and more


A co-production Fondazione Cinema per Roma and MAXXI.
