A year of life in the largest slum in Italy, the story of the daily life of laborers exploited to bring food to our tables.

In Italy, over 500,000 immigrants live without documents. In the absence of an alternative, many of them seek refuge and work in the countryside of our country, where they are used to collect the food we all eat.
One Day One Day tells a year in the life of these people from inside the Apulian slum of Borgo Mezzanone (the largest of its kind in Italy), a fraction of Manfredonia. The film is not an investigation into the illegal hiring, but a look at its protagonists, for a better understanding of the difficulties that those who live clandestinely face. The film is “forbidden to adults”: it begins its journey in schools throughout Italy, where it is presented free of charge to only one category of people, the students.

Olmo Parenti – director of 28 years. One Day One Day is his second feature film, after Not Everything is Black (2019), a documentary on blindness. He directs video clips for Universal, Sony and Warner. In March 2020 he produces a series of videos on the COVID-19 situation in Italy, which accumulate more than 30 million views. He thus becomes a collaborator of The Atlantic, one of the most important American newspapers.
