A docufilm on Still I Rise: the new production of Groenlandia with Rai Cinema

We are pleased to introduce "STILL I RISE - Quando la scuola salva la vita", a new project about the international non-profit organization that was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2023, founded by Nicolò Govoni. The latter was also nominated for the same prize in 2020. The docufilm, directed by Giuseppe Marco Albano, written by Nicola Vicinanza, and produced by Matteo Rovere and Leonardo Godano, is a Groenlandia production with Rai Cinema.

In most parts of the world, school is crucial for development as it allows children to grow, train, and find self-expression. In other parts of the world, school can save your life. The mission of non-profit organization Still I Rise is to solve the global school crisis by emancipating the most vulnerable minors through a cutting-edge educational model that aims to provide free, high-quality education to all children.

The docufilm will tell the stories of these students and their daily lives in the facilities. It will unveil some of the world's most difficult places, where children usually have no future, and where instead the schools of Still I Rise are giving it back to them.

"Nicolò's story has a unique power, it is able to inspire people, change lives, and make us see the better world we could all live in if only we wanted to. For Groenlandia, it is an honor to have the chance to tell this journey together with Rai Cinema, with the hope of being able to spread not only a way to experience school, but a way to exist together, opening our arms to those who fight every day not to destroy, but build," said Matteo Rovere, CEO of Groenlandia.

"It is an unprecedented dream to see our work immortalized and spread around the world through the art of film. Our work on the ground and our effort to raise global awareness are equally important, and we are confident that the collaboration with Groenlandia and Rai Cinema will allow us to reach people like never before. This is the greatest opportunity we have been given to date, and our gratitude is unlimited. We can't wait!", said Nicolò Govoni, President and CEO of Still I Rise. (Press release)
