Good Tidings (La buona novella)

Sebastiano Luca Insinga | 2018 | Italy | 15

When the climate in the Mediterranean turns mild, boats full of migrants leave from the coasts of Africa and Asia trying to reach Europe, the ‘promised land’. On a summer night, ‘Bochra’ arrived on a beach in Sicily with over 100 people on board. All soon escaped but ‘Bochra remained, alone in the limbo between sea and earth…. until the tourists arrived.

Director Statement

During my studies in Literature, I began to use film as a mean of expression. I was selected for Berlinale Talent Campus in 2012 and for Film Factory Italia in 2013. In 2016 I finished my first feature documentary “Complimenti per la festa” (MK OK) that marked the end of my youth. Since my early works the main theme was migration. My research is always focused on the role of hope and death in human societies.
