A deeply moving and beautifully shot portrait by director Greg Hackett of UK-based Spindle. “Outside the Lines” tells the story of a young Italian basketball team whose simple desire to compete raises issues of home and belonging for those denied automatic citizenship in the country in which they were born. Italy does not currently grant the right to citizenship at birth, ‘ius soli’, leaving over a million children of immigrant parents with painfully ambiguous citizenship status.
