Fire at Sea

A Feature film by Gianfranco Rosi

Release in France : 28/09/2016

    Synopsis

    Samuele is 12 years old and lives on an island in the middle of the sea. He goes to school, loves shooting his slingshot and going hunting. He likes land games, even though everything around him evokes the sea and the men, women, and children who try to cross it to get to his island. But his is not an island like the others, its name is Lampedusa and it is the most symbolic frontier of Europe, which has been crossed by thousands of migrants in search of freedom over the past twenty years.
