Gianfranco Rosi's Fire at Sea: Winner of the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival 2016, this is an incisive, poignant and deeply moving portrait of the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa and the humanitarian crisis occurring in the seas around it. Lampedusa, 150 miles south of Sicily is the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern refugees hoping to make a new life in Europe. Rosi accumulated an incredible array of footage, portraying the history, culture and daily lives of the islanders. Focusing on 12-year-old Samuele, as he explores the land and attempts to gain mastery of the sea, the film slowly builds a breathtakingly naturalistic portrait of the Lampedusan people and the events that surround them. The result is a lyrical, poetic and searingly powerful documentary that casts neither judgement nor aspersions, but simply shows the world to the viewer--to utterly devastating effect.
