IO CAPITANO

Io capitano

Today – Thu 18 Apr

Why watch?

A triumph of a film! The unbreakable bond of the boys, the vast scale of their journey is beautifully shot, the determination and ability to rise to the challenge and become men whilst wanting nothing but their mothers. I loved this film, and it must be seen BIG.

Io capitano is an emotional spectacle of the immense journey taken by many, survived by few.

Part of Cinema Africa!

In this acclaimed film which won top directing and acting prizes at the Venice Film Festival, writer and director Garrone presents a "reverse shot" of the immigration experience while unfurling an epic, cinematographically magnificent odyssey from West Africa to Italy.

The story is told through the mind’s eye and experiences of two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar who yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean, where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.
