Samuele, a 12-year old boy, lives in Lampedusa, a remote Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for refugees into Europe. He lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot, while nearby thousands of men, women, and children risk their lives for a new life.

MUBI's take

A profound and haunting film, this Oscar® nominee is the first documentary to win the Golden Bear at Berlin. Moving beyond headline caricature, director Gianfranco Rosi paints an impressive portrait of life on a Mediterranean island, juxtaposed with the survival of migrants that hope to reach it.
