Fire at Sea

  • Barrymore Theater

Fire at Sea was an Academy Award® nominee for Best Documentary Feature and the first nonfiction film to ever win the top prize at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film takes place in Lampedusa, a remote Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for refugees into Europe. It jolts the audience into a new understanding of what is happening in the region, the heavy toll of the migrant crisis, and the price of freedom.
