Fire at Sea (2016)

Movie Review

The film tells the story of 12-year-old Samuel, who lives on an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Like all boys his age, he likes to climb rocks on the coast and play with a slingshot. But his home is not like any other island. For years it has been a haven for people trying to get across from Africa in boats too small and decrepit. The island of Lampedusa has become a symbol of the resettlement of refugees in Europe, their hopes, their hardships and the fates of thousands of emigrants. These people seek peace, freedom, and happiness, and yet from time to time only their dead bodies end up on land.
