London has never attracted so many Italians as in the last few years. In a period when European immigration is continuously debated in politics, and after the controversial outcome of the Brexit referendum, INFLUX offers an emotional self-analysis that reveals the strengths and weaknesses of Italians, showing the uniqueness of their mentality as well as their contradictions.
A documentary that reveals 'the pulse' of Italy and Italians through the perspective of both well-established and newly arrived immigrants in London. A kaleidoscopic mosaic of voices and faces, the film analyses the psyche of an entire country as its future hangs in the balance, reflecting the rage, fear, fulfilment, frustration, sense of redemption, success, failure, recklessness and self-awareness felt by Italian 'Londoners’.
