Erdoğan arresting ex Miss Turkey with the accusation of defamation towards the president. Philippines leader Duterte jokes about Viagra. Putin’s ostentatious iconography, Trump’s gaffes and Kim Jong-un’s threats: whereas global public opinion seems to be increasingly fascinated by the rhetoric of the “strongman”, Oltreconfine invites you on a tour around the world to discover authoritarian leaders’ most unlikely aspects. Through a 360° gallery of portraits from all over the world, departing from Africa to Asia, and from the Americas to Europe, journalists, experts and photo-reporters, investigate the flaws and fragilities of the most powerful men of the world.
Oltreconfine is the first live-show that brings foreign journalism into the spotlight: stories that come from afar narrated by people who have experienced them first hand.
