riprese“Crossing the Line” (“Across the Line”) is a project that results in a documentary on the lives of young people from different European cities. It gets its name because it was originally filmed in Liverpool, a city where there is an imaginary border between the north and the south of the city. In Palermo there are many lines of youngsters’ life converging on the weekend in Politeama Square. And it has been there where CE.SIE together with the boys and girls participating in the project developed a new activity on Saturday.

In this case young people were playing the role of journalists, interviewing other young people met around the square, with the aim of talking about the problems of the city. In previous meetings, the group of boys from different neighborhoods (Ballarò La Noce, Ciaculli …) has reflected about how the characteristics of Palermo affect them every day, about issues faced in the course of their lives and they have also known several places and realities of the city still unknown to them.

“Crossing the Line” is a project under the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission. The Dutch, Romanian and Bulgarian partner organizations of CE.SIE are developing contemporary the same kind of documentaries in their cities. For 2011, a meeting is planned in Palermo with all participants, during which will be projected the film “Crossing the Line”, produced by the various pieces of the documentaries filmed in each country.
