SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT
A selection of short films for high school students, useful for an education regarding gender differences. This is Same same but different, a project shared with Paper Moon and the Cineteca di Bologna. They are small films that offer insights into situations related to the family, appearance, friendship, love and much, much more. A possibility to create a debate that will involve the teenagers in an educational experience, where they themselves will be the protagonists.
