STORY DESCRIPTION:

The ‘asse mediano’ (central axis road) is the elevated highway that connects the northern outskirts of Cagliari with those to the south. For an entire school year, Salvatore Mereu took it daily, shuttling between the middle schools in Sant’Elia and San Michele, two of the city’s troubled areas, to teach film classes. His initial reflections while on the road, fatigued by the exhausting challenge of working in borderline situations, gradually give way to much more energetic musings: an energy that passes from the kids to the professor and back, as their stories intersect. The documentary describes ‘Tajabone’ and its surroundings, from which the stories of Munira, Andrea, Angelic, Jessica, and Abdoula emerge, each of them unique inthe film, even though Munira thinks that “when you’re in middle school, you’re all lumped together”.
