The Journey: Over the Sea
The journey : over the sea participative documentary that reports the stories, the journeys of the traffic phenomenon of the Nigerian young women and their arrivals on the border of the fake European roads.
We tell how they are enslaved by the criminal associations that bring them to Europe through the promise of a job and a better life. Linked to the organization by a voodoo ritual, scared and compelled to swear to give the money used for the journey back when arrived to destination; they do not want to talk, then swearing never to reveal their identity, little by little they release themselves . A mamam/ madame recruits them, takes care of them, and keeps them in check . The black art power with which the guardians supervise their victims is not a legend. And the Nigerian women are terrified by it, the fidelity to the madame is stable. The journey that brings them to Europe, includes the passage through country with great instability, where they are imprisoned, abused, tortured and , in many cases, compelled to prostitution to be able to continue the journey. When they arrive in Italy they are obliged to leave the support center to reach the Madame who will force them to prostitution.
