gets a new look !
Maki, a young migrant Tunisian, who among many others, crossed the sea to Lampedusa after the revolution, said to me one day:
"History is only written about great people, us, we don’t exist"
Months later, we decided to write a piece of history together.
"The sea burns" stands at the paradoxical crossroads between the dynamic energy of an ongoing revolution, the drive to set out for Europe, and the violence of being refused entry.
The film seeks that which constitutes the sensitive core of a life at the moment of rupture. That which is tiny, common to us all, far from exoticism, but haunted by the dream, like a call.
