Director: Gianfranco Rosi
106 minutes

Making headlines in the midst of the recent migration crisis, the Italian island of Lampedusa is a landing ground for African and Middle Eastern refugees with the hope of commencing a new life. Spending months living on the island and engaging with its inhabitants, director Gianfranco Rosi depicts the history , culture and daily life of Lampedusa while following 12-year-old Samuele as he explores the land and navigates the seas from afar.

A perceptive and poignant portrait of Lampedusa and the humanitarian crisis enveloping the island, Fuocoammare [Fire at Sea] (2016), was awarded the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin Film Festival, and nominated for Best Documentary at the 89th Academy Awards the same year.
