Mediterranea

Director: Jonas Carpignano
- Drama (Fiction) - Italy, France, USA, Germany, Qatar - 107 minutes - Unrated - English Subtitles

May 15, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

Searing and timely film by first time filmmaker Jonas Carpignano about North African refugees who cross the sea to Italy. A gripping tale of survival told with vivid realism, Mediterranea immerses viewers into the heart of a humanitarian crisis that for far too many is a lived reality. Hostility and racism simmer under the surface of small town life, as the refugees attempt to find work and make a life for themselves in their new home. Inspired by a real event– the spontaneous rebellion in 2010 by hundreds of migrant workers who took to the street in Rosarno– this film has won accolades for its complex and tender portrait of refugees in their new life.

Panel discussion with Cornelia Alvarez and Prof. Erin Jacobsen from Vermont Law School, and others.
