About: GRIMEBORN: San Domino

Based on the reality of Mussolini’s persecution of homosexuals, this is the story of men sentenced to five years confinement for degeneracy.

One night in 1938, Carlo, Claudio and friends are arrested in Catania. Condemned without any trial, they arrive on San Domino: a prison island solely for gay men.

For all the indignity and squalor of prison life, men previously forced to live in the shadows now have no need to hide who they are. But whatever kind of life they may be trying to build, in the background war is looming.

Actor-musicians conjure up an intimate claustrophobic world, as they interweave the poignant tale of the inmates’ struggles with a modern day visit to the island in 2013 by gay activists, eager to challenge homophobia and end Italy’s ignorance, or denial, of its fascist past.
