Alessio Ballerini has composed the soundtrack for the documentary Wiwanana. The film by Iacopo Patierno tells the history of the project ‘Il Teatro fa bene’ by Jacopo Fo.

A group of five Italians and a Mozambican go round the forests of Mozambique in search of five amateur actors. The objective is to take them to Italy, write a comedy on health information together, and finally organise a tour around the villages of North Mozambique.
Will they manage in spite of their cultural differences?
This is the story of Wiwanana, or how dialogue is the most powerful weapon in the fight for change.
