How does one, as a child, deal with the enormous mental pressure of travelling, with distrustful authorities and disturbing messages from the home front? The Mind Game is an intimate documentary about the psychological pressure young refugees face, mostly filmed from a first-hand perspective.

In collaboration with Istituto Penale per Minorenni "Pietro Siciliani", ASP Città di Bologna, Arca di Noé, Refugees Welcome Bologna, Next Generation Italy and Embassy and General Consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as part of the FuturoPresente programme.
