La Bibliotheque est à nous
Clamart, in the suburbs of Paris, France. An unusual library has captivated and stimulated the local youth for fifty years. Born from a private initiative to offer books and freedom to children, this exceptional place is now struggling to preserve its independence, while facing increasingly restrictive public policies.
Best documentary, ARPA “Il faro” Award

Cultural work as an antidote to social exclusion and as a weapon of mass salvation, able to actually fight marginalization, at the root of terrible choices, which we are witnessing directly in these years.
The forty year experiment in Clamart is very close to what We are Living today in the places where the relationship between people and their territory is made to disappeat, if the power is left exclusively to a certain type of politics.
The theme treated with direct and objective language Is not only witness to a Story which was successful, and is now racing difficulty, but also defines details of this experience, painting it as a model to observe, comprehend, and emulate as soon as possible.
