In October 2013 366 mostly Eritrean migrants drowned in a shipwreck off the Italian island of Lampedusa, while trying to reach Europe. I shot and directed parts 1 and 3 of Fortress Italia, the story behind the tragedy and the Italian beauty spot which has become an open prison for survivors of a deadly journey. Link to part 1 Capsized in Lampedusa. (Scroll down for link to part 3)
After making it to the Italian mainland, many African migrants find themselves living in worse conditions than those they were trying to escape. Link to part 3 of Vice News’ Fortress Italia, which I shot and directed.
