FIRE AT SEA

RETURN
Winner of the Berlin Golden Bear for Best Film and nominated for the 2017 Oscar for Best Documentary, Gianfranco Rosi’s incisive, poignant and deeply moving portrait of the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa - and the humanitarian crisis occurring in the seas around it - is both a masterly work of documentary filmmaking and a timely call for urgent action. Rosi spent months living on the island and filming its inhabitants. The result is a lyrical and poetic yet searingly powerful documentary that casts neither judgement nor aspersions, but simply shows the world to the viewer - to utterly devastating effect. ★★★★★ "Gianfranco Rosi’s beautiful, mysterious and moving film is a documentary that looks like a neorealist classic" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "This delicate film about the present migrant crisis provides no commentary, no text or context, it just shows – with powerful effect" - David Sexton, Evening Standard
