The Island of Lampedusa, 200 kilometers off the coast of Italy, has become one of the main entry points to Europe for hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East. Rosi spent months on Lampedusa, exploring the history, culture, and day-to-day lives of its over 6,000 inhabitants. He ended up focusing on Samuele, a 12-year-old whose life is divided between slingshot hunting on land and the maritime culture of an old port changing under the weight of the hundreds of foreigners who enter it every week.
