    Outline (Word Count: 19)

    A little fairytale of a child and her imaginary friends, recalled by an old woman drifting into bygone memories

    Synopsis (1) (Word Count: 44)

    An elderly woman recalls bygone memories: as a child she had three imaginary pets that she held with strings. She carried with her them all day and night, until one day she lost them. She looked for them everywhere to then find them unexpectedly.

    Synopsis (2) (Word Count: 122)

    This story is told by Betty, an elderly woman, embroidering on a quiet afternoon.
    When she was a child, during the Second World War, she had three invisible pets that she held with three strings. She knew they were invisible and the only way she could keep her imaginary friends close was to let never go of the strings.
    She carried them all day and night, until one night during an air raid she was forced to leave them behind, losing them. She looked for them everywhere. Time passed and Betty grew old with the sensation that something was always missing, until one day she realised that she has never lost them, because her imaginary friends had always been living inside her.

  4. Brixton has degenerated into a disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce - robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of Brixton has rocketed, resulting in unplanned, cheap and quick additions to the skyline.

    The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.

  5. Family fathers, female workers, young boys and girls born in Italy. Many of them arrive every day in the Identification and Expulsion centres (CIE) of Rome. They did not commit any crime, nevertheless they risk to spend 18 months behind bars waiting to be expelled. They detention is validated by a Justice of the Peace. In the name of the Italian People. An expired visa is enough. According to the law. And this is also enough to reassure public opinion and delete the problem. However we decided to go and take a look. A short doc came out of it, a journey made of images and stories from the CIE of Roma. Since we believe that showing those places and listen to those voices means breaking a definition. As well as confirming that no human being is illegal. Not even when the law say so.
