The island of Lampedusa is Italy’s southernmost point. Since 1990 it has become a place of mass disembarkation by illegal immigrants coming from Africa. In little more than 20 years, more than 20,000 people have drowned while making the crossing to what is for many a route of entry to Europe, and one which should allow them to escape from war and hunger. Samuele lives on the island. He’s ten years old, goes to school and likes playing with his sling and hunting. He prefers games related to land, even if everyone around him talks about the sea and about the men, women and children who try to make their way over it to get there.

BIOGRAPHY

After a trip to India, Gianfranco Rosi (Asmara, Eritrea, 1964) produced and helmed his first documentary, Boatman (1993), screened at festivals such as Sundance, Locarno and Toronto. In 2008, Below Sea Level won the Horizontes Award at the Venice Film Festival, among other accolades. In 2010 he shot El Sicario – Habitación 164 (El Sicario – Room 164), winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at Venice and of the Doc/It for Best Documentary of the Year. In 2013 he made the documentary Sacro GRA, winner of the Golden Lion at Venice. Fuoccoamare carried off the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale.
