Fire at Sea is a documentary by director Gianfranco Rosi that captures life on the Italian Island of Lampedusa, a frontline in the European migrant crisis.
The sleepy Italian island of Lampedusa, some 70 miles from Tunisia, has become the first stop for hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming into Europe to escape conflict, poverty and persecution throughout Africa and the Middle East. This film offers a startlingly poignant glimpse into the small island’s culture as its people encounter waves of desperate newcomers packed into rickety fishing boats, many of whom die before reaching Lampedusa’s coast. As the residents of Lampedusa attempt to go about the quotidian aspects of their day, one of the world’s most tragic crises is literally washing up on their shores.
