    "This rich, observational, ripped-from-the-headlines story...demands a wide audience." - The Guardian

    "No other movie at this year's Cannes Film Festival hits such a profoundly topical note... It renders a global crisis in strikingly intimate terms." - IndieWire

    "The unselfconscious naturalness of the nonprofessional cast yields no shortage of sharply observed moments." - The Hollywood Reporter

    This remarkably timely, eye-opening film charts the death-defying struggle of African migrants as they risk everything to start a new life in Europe. Ayiva (first time actor Koudous Seihon in a revelatory performance) and Abas (Alassane Sy) are close friends from Burkina Faso determined to make it to Italy in order to find work and provide for their families back home. But even after surviving the harrowing journey - desert bandits, a treacherous sea voyage, arrest - nothing can prepare the two men for the hostility and violence that awaits them. A gripping tale of survival told with vivid realism, Mediterranea immerses viewers in the heart of a humanitarian crisis that for far too many is a lived reality. Show less
