The music-video Caregivers portrays two migrant care-givers from Ukraine and Romania and their (elderly) clients in their relationship and daily work in the area of Rovereto. The work combines visual arts, journalism and classical contemporary music. It ́s structure is conceived roughly as a (pop)music video intertwined with documentary and home-video portrayal, juxtaposing the video images with a newspaper article which has been turned into a classical-contemporary music piece.
The writer is a young Italian-American journalist Davide Berretta.
