(Jakob Brossmann, 2015, Austria/Italy/Switzerland, 93 mins)
A hard-hitting documentary film about life and death on the border of Europe. The tiny island of Lampedusa, Italy, is the first port of call for African migrants seeking haven in Europe. It’s winter, the tourists have left, and the remaining refugees and local fisherman struggle to carry on with their daily lives. This debut film by young Austrian director Jakob Brossman played as part of the Critics’ Week at the Locarno Film Festival.
