mediacoverage intro 2


The ‘Heart of a Murderer’ was screened in the months of October and November 2014 in various Italian cities, in theaters, churches and mosques, during a ‘tour’ with the protagonists father Swami and sister Selmy. The success of the ‘tour’ was testified not only by the public at the screenings  - in Rome and Bologna people exceeded expectations so that at the very last moment a second showing had to be organized, - but also by the very positive reviews in the media, television, press and radio alike.
