Rai 3 – Doc 3 (Italy)
Doc3, inside RAI3, is a 50’ slot entirely dedicated to broadcast documentaries. We are requesting features either from a thematic point of view, or a stylistic one. We try to narrate the contemporary human condition, through individual stories with a relevant social background. A specific interest is dedicated to the situations where contradictions, conflicts and transformations are involved, so that a critical approach to the society can be encouraged. From a stylistic point of view we believe in the classical documentary’s resources, based on a mix of real life shooting and interviews, keeping afar either from the journalistic.
