Situated some 200km off Italy’s southern coast, Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants hoping to make a new life in Europe.
Director Gianfranco Rosi spent months living on the Mediterranean island, capturing its history, culture and the current everyday reality of its 6,000-strong local population who find themselves at the centre of a global crisis as hundreds of migrants land on its shores on a weekly basis.
Winner of four prizes at the Berlin Film Festival, including the Golden Bear award. In English and Italian with English subtitles.
