No man is an island

Over the past 20 years, the Sicilian island of Lampedusa has seen the arrival of more than 400,000 refugees and migrants who are out to make a better life for themselves in Europe. It goes without saying that this puts a strain on a society of roughly six thousand inhabitants, and in FIRE AT SEA scenes of dead bodies washed up on the shore are contrasted with the everyday concerns of the local population. The resulting perspective is both distancing and deeply humanistic – a combination which won the film the Golden Bear in Berlin earlier this year.
