Winner of the Golden Bear at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, Gianfranco Rossi uses a ‘daring hybrid’ of captured footage and staged storytelling to examine the European migrant crisis. It zeros in on the Sicilian Island of Lampedusa, the first point of contact for many refugees seeking safety in Europe, contrasting the dangerous crossing of the refugees with the ordinary lives of the local citizens.
