Fire at Sea, an Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature, is an extraordinary, deeply-moving story of refugees who have been flooding Lampedusa, a microscopic Mediterranean island between Sicily and Africa.

Storytelling that allows us to consider what documentary can do. It is urgent, imaginative and necessary filmmaking.” –Meryl Streep
