Best Documentary Feature Oscar Nominee!

2016, Kino Lorber, 108 min, Italy/France, Dir: Gianfranco Rosi

This Golden Bear winner (and European Film Award nominee) is set on Lampedusa, midway between Libya and Sicily. In recent years, the little island has been deluged by a wave of African refugees, and the humanitarian crisis is filtered here through the lives of such bystanders as 12-year-old Samuele Pucillo, whose limited awareness of the newcomers’ plight reflects that of most people outside of frontline rescue personnel. “Gianfranco Rosi’s beautiful, mysterious and moving film is a documentary that looks like a neorealist classic.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
