“Still Alive” is a work on the border between film and documentary.
From dawn to dusk, we tell the day of the Bar Boon Band, the music band founded by the homeless in Milan, and its members.
The star of the film is their music, which describes the stories and the vicissitudes of many people linked to a reality so hidden, poetic and profound. From illegal immigrants to the poor in general, it is the story of an underground world with its own rules where the existential loneliness is founded with the tension towards the absolute and the pursuit of happiness of human beings.
The film is a poetic portrait, true and deep, that addresses a very serious topic,simultaneously highlighting the important function of art in our society.
