People often talk about migration in terms of numbers: the statistical calculation of the dead and the survivors. Of those who did it and who did not. But behind this aseptic calculation there are the stories and the dreams of these immigrants, about what no newspaper in the world will ever talk deeply and properly. Nevertheless, people talk and write a lot about migration, on both newspapers and television.
We want to focus exaclty on the stories behind those frightened faces and streched-out arms of the pictures we see on the press or on the screen. We want to focus on the tears and the smiles, the hopes and the fears of these immigrants, instead of considering them as news items.
