THF FILM SERIES: Fire at Sea
Web Premiere @ 4PM
Commentary by Francesco Rabissi, French & Italian
Rabissi introduces the remote Mediterranean island Lampedusa, where Italian director Gianfranco Rosi’s award-winning documentary juxtaposes the daily life of a local 12-year-old boy with the experiences of thousands of men, women and children who risk their lives to make the brutal sea crossing from Africa, jolting the audience into a new understanding of what is happening in the region, the heavy toll of the migrant crisis, and the price of freedom.
