The Italian “refugee island” of Lampedusa is in the firm grip of winter's tristesse. Tourists have left, the remaining refugees fight to be taken to the mainland. As a fire destroys the worn down ferry, that connects the island to Italy, the mayor Giusi Nicolini and the local fishermen struggle for a new ship. The tiny community at the edge of Europe is engaged in a desperate struggle for solidarity with those who many consider the cause of the ongoing crisis: the African boat people. Italian, Arabic, Tigrinya with subtitles. Winner of the Vienna Film Award for Best Documentary, Viennale 2015.

Please arrive early. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to theater capacity. Film is unrated. Viewer discretion is advised.

Presented by Cinema/Chicago and the Chicago International Film Festival, Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Italian Cultural Institute in Chicago and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
