Fire at SeaFire at Sea



A documentary that takes place in Lampedusa, a remote Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for refugees into Europe. There, we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot; all while, nearby, thousands of men, women, and children risk their lives to make the brutal crossing from Africa.
