FIRE AT SEA
Winner of the Berlin Film Festival’s top prize, the Golden Bear, Fire at Sea takes an observational look at the waves of refugees landing on the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa. Renowned filmmaker Gianfranco Rosi has long been celebrated in Europe (winning the Venice Film Festival for his film Sacro GRA) and his reputation is now growing in America. Fire at Sea balances the perspectives of the migrants and the locals for a poignant chronicle. Courtesy of Kino Lorber.
