Io Capitano

not rated; 121 minutes; in Wolof, French with subtitles; Directed by: Matteo Garrone
Starring: Seydou Sarr, Moustapha Fall, Issaka Sawadogo
Nominated for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards, Io Capitano depicts the immigration experience while unfurling an epic odyssey from West Africa to Italy. The story is told through the mind’s eye and experiences of two Senegalese teenagers who yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.
