Public screening of ‘Fuocoammare’ today

As part of the ongoing Berlinale Spotlight Bangladesh 2018, Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in partnership with Dhaka DocLab and the International Film Initiatives of Bangladesh, is organising a public screening of the film ‘Fuocoammare’ today at 5:30 pm at Goethe-Institut auditorium in Dhanmondi of the capital. The film is directed by Gianfranco Rosi.

Dorothee Wenner, Delegate to the Berlin Film Festival for South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa and Meenakshi Shedde, South Asia Consultant of Berlin Film Festival are expected to be present as the special guests at the event. Director of Goethe-Institut Bangladesh Dr Kirsten Hackenbroch will deliver welcome speech at the event.

The film ‘Fuocoammare’ will show Samuele is 12 years old and lives on an island in the middle of the sea. He goes to school, loves shooting his slingshot and going hunting. He likes land games, even though everything around him speaks of the sea and the men, women and children who try to cross it to get to his island. But this is not an island like the others, its name is Lampedusa and it is the most symbolic border of Europe, crossed by thousands of migrants in the last 20 years in search of freedom.

No entrance fees, while the audience were requested to carry a valid photo ID card to show at the entrance.

Where: Goethe-Institut, House 10, Road 9 (new), Dhanmondi R/A

When: 5:30pm, today
