On Lampedusa,

Such a powerful film document. The static long takes, composition framings and ultra-slo camera pans are astounding and the editorial language speaks in a universal tongue. This is such a beautifully shot film to look at, and despite its gradual depictions of death and physical suffering the balance it seams with 'hope' makes this visual exodus comprehensible - still absorbing this. Gorgeous. bye.
