Va’ pensiero, Walking Stories is an interwoven account of two racist attacks in Milan and Florence and the victims’ painful attempts to piece the fragments of their lives back together. The stories of three Senegalese men living in Italy: Mohamed Ba, Mor Sougou, and Cheik Mbeng. As these men discuss their experiences with violence in Milan and Florence, they describe the vulnerability associated with being a racialized migrant in Italy. This powerful portrayal of the three men, the director notes, attempts to “show the emotions, the fears, the attempts at getting free from the past of those who, from one day to the next, find themselves victims only because of the color of their skin. The film allows the migrant to shed his anonymity and the public to rediscover the man behind the victim.
