On Friday 2nd June 2017 (Italian National Day and Republic Day), Dr Erminia Colucci (founder of Movie-ment) was awarded the 2017 ‘Martinesi nel mondo’ prize by the Rotary International club (Martina Franca section), for her contribution made on a global scale to the issues of mental health, human rights and violence against women and children as a researcher, lecturer, clinician, activist/advocate and film-maker.
The ceremony took place in Martina Franca town Hall and was attended by members of the public, police and government authorities and Rotary members. During the ceremony, Erminia gave an overview of her career trajectory and main achievements and showed a short-cut of her documentary ‘Breaking the chains’.
‘Breaking the chains’ will be screened on Thursday at 4 pm-6 pm as part of the Blizard Institute ‘Anthropologies of Global Health’.
