2014 - Malta - 101min - M   Drama
Dir: : Rebecca Cremona
Cast: Lotfi Abdelli, Jimi Busuttil, Sékouba Doucouré 
Young Theo is sent on his first trip with his Maltese sea faring family, but things go terribly wrong. Simultaneously, Alex - a medic reluctantly dispatched onto a Turkish Merchant vessel which has rescued a group of stranded African boat people between Malta and Italy - gets stuck on the boat as the countries wage a bureaucratic war over who should take in the migrants...
I saw this recently, thanks to the local art-house cinema, and commend it to anyone looking for insight into the Mediterranean refugee crisis.
