Film Screening: "Fire at Sea / Fuocoammare" (2016)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-02 23:00
Smith Warehouse - Bay 4, C105 - Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall
Join the Rubenstein Library's Human Rights Archive and the Duke Human Rights Center @FHI for a special film screening, photo exhibition, and post-film discussion.The first documentary to ever win the top award at the Berlin International Film Festival, "Fire at Sea" takes place in Lampedusa, a once peaceful Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for African refugees into Europe. There, we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot. Yet nearby we also witness thousands of men, women, and children trying to survive the crossing from Africa in boats that are too small for such a journey. Filmmaker Gianfranco Rose masterfully places these realities side by side, and in so doing creates a remarkable third narrative that jolts us into a new understanding of what is really happening in the Mediterranean today.The screening will be accompanied by an exhibit of works by photographer Darrin Zammit Lupi, who will participate in a post-screening discussion.Free and open to the public.
