Movie Info

After DAS BOOT IS FULL and MORE THAN HONEY, Swiss director Markus Imhoof once again tells a very personal story in order to make a global phenomenon - the fate of thousands of people fleeing to Europe - tangible. His questions about humanity and social responsibility in today's world lead him back to his childhood and to his deep connection with the Italian refugee child Giovanna. He never forgot Giovanna, followed her tracks and lived in her country. 70 years later, strangers come to us again. Now he is boarding a ship of the Italian Coast Guard, the operation "Mare Nostrum", in the course of which more than 100,000 people are drawn from the Mediterranean. With the eyes of the child he was then, he feels the questions that have always bothered him.

Imhoof's gently-roaming camera holds a mirror to Western society, and it reflects a distorted and ugly face.
