At Saga Lecture Theatre 1

Winner of the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, Fire at Sea focuses on the Italian island of Lampedusa during the European migrant crisis, contrasting the dangerous Mediterranean crossing undertaken by refugees with the seemingly quiet lives of the local islanders.

The Migration Documentary Film Series is supported by the Global Affairs major, Anthropology major, the Global Citizenship program at CIPE, and is part of Prof. Anju Paul’s class on International Migration.

Dinner will be provided at the film screening.
