Italy | 2016 | Gianfranco Rosi
One of this year’s five Oscar nominees for Best Documentary Feature, Gianfranco Rosi’s observational documentary chronicles how the current European migrant crisis has affected the Sicilian island of Lampedusa, located only 70 miles from the coast of North Africa. For two decades now, Italian fishermen and their families on the island have had to coexist with boatloads of African and Middle Eastern refugees who risk (and often lose) their lives crossing the Mediterranean in search of safety and stability. “Masterly filmmaking.” –The Guardian. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 114 min.
