  THE CHILDREN KNOW
  "A potrait of tomorrow's Italy" - IL GIORNALE
Plot: Thirty-nine children, from Northern to Southern Italy, are interviewed in their own rooms: they describe them, letting their objects, pictures and furniture become part of their being.
The camera thus becomes the means to discover the world through the eyes of the children; to understand their take on "grownup stuff"; to discover their future projects, their dreams and their points of view on life's big issues; love, family, religion. The narrative allows a variety of differences between the children to emerge: cultures, background, personal history.
Ultimately, the children’s answers yield big lessons for the grownups. When the question goes, "What do you need in life to be happy?", one child has no doubts: "To dream".
