THE HUMAN CARGO • LA NAVE DOLCE

(Director, Daniele Vicari, Documentary, 2012, 90 min.)On August 7,1991, the ship Vlora returned from Cuba to the Albanian port of Durazzo. During the unloading process, a crowd of people rushed the ship and forced the captain to sail to Italy. The next day, the Vlora, carrying twenty-thousand people, arrived in the port of Bari.
