Hailing from Africa, their eyes set on Europe, they come with empty hands and infinite dreams, drawn across deserts and oceans by the promise of a
better life. Occasionally, they make the news, when a boat sinks en route or police crack down on the other side, but by and large, these immigrants
remain invisible, despite the fact their personal struggles would make for incredible stories.

jury’s declaration:

“Mediterranea has everything which is needed to a good movie. This is very important for Art Cinema. It has an interesting and catching story, an emotional acting and moving rhythm.

There is a beautiful and impressive visual design. And on the top of all it has a very good directing. The directing produces a marvelous equilibrium of closeness and distance to this extraordinary story.

Two friends try to live in Italy after an adventures distress at see and being rescued from the italian navy.”

Jury was made of cinema exhibitors Balázs KALMANOVITS (HU) et Nikos GRIGORIADIS (AT)
