About This Event

The Center for Italian Culture's Nuovo Mondo series continues with a screening of Fuocoammare (Fire at Sea), a gripping 2016 Italian documentary film directed by Gianfranco Rosi. This film, which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, was shot on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa during the ongoing European migrant crisis, and sets the dangerous Mediterranean crossing by migrants against a background of the ordinary life of the islanders.
