7:00 PM
LAMPEDUSA IN WINTER
by Jakob Brossmann
Austria/Italy/Switzerland, In Italian with English subtitles, 2015, 93 min, digital

This screening is part of: DISPLACED PERSONS: MIGRATION ON FILM

Film Notes

This documentary reveals the numerous crises besetting the residents – both temporary and permanent – of Lampedusa, the Italian island that is the first port of call for African migrants striving to reach Europe. While the migrants protest the poor treatment they receive, the local fishing community is also restless. There’s division among the inhabitants of the island, and the garbage is piling up – as are the leaky, abandoned immigrant boats in the harbor. In the meantime, a lawyer from Palermo is trying to arrange a place of burial for those who have died, and the mayor is trying to keep everyone calm. LAMPEDUSA IN WINTER is an elegant documentary portrait of a tiny community at the edge of Europe that’s engaged in a desperate fight for dignity, and for solidarity with those who many consider the cause of the ongoing crisis: the African boat people.
