Nothing But the Sea
Categories: Documentary

Two worlds that rarely speak to each other: the migrant, and the island. Carried along by the music of Nicola Alesini, this sensitive film gives a portrait of the island Lampedusa, off the coast of Italy, through the eyes of Ethiopian illegal migrant and filmmaker, Dagmawi Yimer. Witnessing Dagmawi’s perspective on how the islanders – and their relationships to African migrants – have changed over time, we are brought right up to early 2011, when new landings, and the revolutions sweeping across North Africa, planted the island firmly on the front of newspapers once again.
