“Storytelling that allows us to consider what documentary can do. It is urgent, imaginative and necessary filmmaking.
-Meryl Streep

FIRE AT SEA takes place in Lampedusa, a once peaceful Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for African refugees into Europe. There, we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot. Yet nearby we also witness thousands of men, women and children trying to survive the crossing from Africa in boats that are too small for such a journey­. Filmmaker Gianfranco Rosi masterfully places these realities side by side, and in so doing creates a remarkable third narrative that jolts us into a new understanding of what is really happening in the Mediterranean today.

“The European migrant crisis has found its cinematic Pietà in Fire At Sea.” – Screen International

Fire at Sea is funded in part by a grant from the Indiana University Department of International Studies
