    "Beautiful, mysterious, and moving," this is how The Guardian describes this absolute masterpiece from Italy. "Fire at Sea" won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and will be the Italian contender at the next Academy Awards.
    It is set on the now famous small island of Lampedusa that has attracted thousands of refugees making a desperate exodus in overcrowded boats. The director Gianfranco Rosi tells the story of a 12-years-old boy and his fisherman father, and of the refugees arriving at the island. It is a moving, beautiful film.

    This is the greatest film coming from Europe this year. Not to be missed.

    They will be going to Elephant & Castle for dinner/drinks and discussion. We can join them or go off on our own

      No problem. I'll be there 15 minutes before the movie starts and then will go in. If you can make it, fine, if not, another time.
