Io Capitano (Me Captain)

– an amazing depiction of an insane journey, from Senegal to Italy, complete with misplaced trust, unbreakable friendship, and magical (sur)realism. There’s a culture shock present even watching it, and the jeopardy they face on route is eye-opening to see, even if you’re aware people trafficking and slavery still exist. It’s hard to imagine someone watching this film without feeling the desperation that underpins the voyage – it really humanises the loaded, yet often dehumanising word: immigrant.
