NEVER WHISTLE ALONE is a collective story told by seven Italian whistleblowers. The film is not a reportage on their cases. It wants instead to reveal a discriminatory practice that is rooted into our working culture: the people who report white-collar crimes, instead of being appreciated, are treated like traitors and, ultimately, they become victims of their own organizations. (Marco Ferrari, Film Director).
Employees from diverse business fields tell us about the illegal activities they have discovered inside their company. They lead us into the rooms where illicit agreements are signed, and show us what they saw. Each of them tells a different case, but all stories have the same plot: regular corruption, attempts to involve others, intimidations for those who don’t play the game, mobbing, isolation.
Interview after interview, the protagonists tell us the story of a normal employee who discovers the bosses‘ illegal activities and has to decide what to do. His life and his future are at stake. On the other side of the table, there is a criminal system that runs 100 billions euro a year.
The screening if followed by a panel discussion which focuses on the impact of whistleblowing in politics, films and culture and discusses the measures of whistleblowing protection adopted in Italy at a European level.
