Fuocoammare - Fire at Sea (2016)

Directed by: Gianfranco Rosi

Fuocoammare is a documentary about Lampedusa- the tragic epicentre of the migrant experience, and the flight of migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East to the Sicilian island. Through the story of a twelve-year-old boy from a local fishing family and a doctor who takes care of arriving migrants, the director analyses the relationship between the refugee emergency and the daily lives of the people of Lampedusa.
