Fire at Sea film screening at FACT
June 26, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm£5
Winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale, this devastating experimental documentary follows assorted residents of the Sicilian island of Lampedusa. Rosi observes various locals, including a boy entering gleeful adolescence, a local DJ and harassed coastguards, and crosscuts these sequences with the experiences of migrants attempting to land on the island in grossly overcrowded boats or living out lives in makeshift camps on the shore. A haunting and powerful film, and an urgent plea for intervention.
The film will be followed by an informal discussion with Mimi Gashi, Sahir House.
Open to the public (ticketed)
