Italy | 2016 | Gianfranco Rosi
Winner of the Golden Bear (top prize) at last year’s Berlin Film Festival and Italy’s official submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Gianfranco Rosi’s observational documentary chronicles how the current European migrant crisis has affected life on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa. For two decades now, Italian fishermen and their families 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. Subtitles. DCP. 114 min.
