San Damiano - A homeless man’s songs echo tales of survival


In the shadows of Rome's bustling Termini station lies an ancient tower, now the unlikely home of Damiano, a 35-year-old Polish man without a roof over his head but with a story to tell. "High Notes: A Song from the Streets" follows Damiano as he navigates the harsh urban landscape, a modern-day warrior confronting both the specters of his past and the present's stark brutality.


Yet, it's when he sings that Damiano's true vulnerability and poetic nature emerge, offering a stark contrast to his rugged exterior. Through his journey, the documentary captures the poignant duality of survival and the transformative power of music in the heart of Rome's forgotten spaces.
