Watch Africa: Mediterranea + Q&A (ctba)

Italy/2015/107mins/ctba. Dir: Jonas Carpignano With: Alassane Sy, Koudous Seihon, Paolo Sciarretta

We welcome back this celebration of African film which you can enjoy alongside African food, crafts, music and dance all day in the cinema foyer.

Ayiva and Abas have fled Burkina Faso, dreaming of a better life on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea. After a death-defying crossing they arrive in southern Italy and the two men have to quickly readjust to life in Europe which is more violent and hostile than they imagined. An unsentimental and creative look at the refugee crisis.

+ Join us for a panel discussion chaired by the Italian Cultural Centre Wales following the film.
