Alessandro Negrini / Irlanda do Norte
Documentário / Digital, 60 min.
Synopsis: Northern Ireland: there are plenty of ghettos around the world, all of them with their own injustice, each of them living on its knees. There is one ghetto condemned to something even worse: it has forgotten its music. It’s The Fountain, in the heart of the city: once a vibrant community, where people used to dance together despite religious differences, now a disappearing Protestant neighborhood killed by fear and politics and turned into an open air prison, now living behind a fence.
