Raffaele Messina in MORE THAN WORDS



Created over the two years of the MORE THAN WORDS research and training project, Border Crossings' new film is a poetic and provocative response to the place of the outsider in European societies, the challenges of language, and the ways in which the arts can communicate and engage where other approaches cannot.  Theatre, clowing, music and dance combine in an extraordinary new work of combined arts.

"This film represents a new type of storytelling. It is not really a film and it is not even a documentary. It's a narrative that doesn't speak to people's minds, but directly to their emotions.”  (Jury member - Lucania Film Festival, Italy)
