Fire at Sea directed by Gianfranco Rosi looks at the European refugee crisis by contrasting the lives of the desperate thousands landing on the shores of a Sicilian island with the everyday existence of the locals.

Rosi sets the documentary in Lampedusa. Situated 150 miles south of Sicily, Lampedusa has hit headlines as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern refugees hoping to make a new life in Europe.
