At a time when everything is in question, why should we talk about heroes? Are the antiheroes the ones who will contribute to the deconstruction and reconstruction of society?

The documentary from Brazil, directed and produced by César Meneghetti entitled "I is another", chronicles the director's work on disability, marginalization and social discomfort. Images, dialogues, memories and reflections are developed by people with various forms of intellectual and physical disabilities.

A group of antiheroes decide to put on a theatrical performance on "How to train an antihero". It is a short documentary by Giannis Bletas, universally accessible by ATLAS EP,which is funded by the iRoDi Festival, in which young "antiheroes" are trained theatrically. Through their great love for theatre, they decide to create a theatrical, improvised performance about superheroes, where at the same time, antiheroes live their daily lives.
