Image of Sting Steps Out to Support Matteo Garrone’s ‘Io Capitano,’ Which Isabella Rossellini Says Her Father ‘Would Have Loved’ (EXCLUSIVE) article

Sting, Isabella Rossellini, and U.S. director Roger Ross Williams (“The Apollo,” “Stamped from the Beginning”) came out to support the recent New York launch of Matteo Garrone’s Venice prizewinning immigration epic “Io Capitano” at the Museum of Modern Art. The movie – which is Italy’s now shortlisted Oscar candidate for best international feature film – narrates the Homeric journey of two two Senegalese teenagers, Seydou and Moussa, who decide to leave Dakar to reach Europe in pursuit of a better life. It realistically depicts their plight through the pitfalls of the desert, the horrors of detention centers in Libya and the dangers of the sea.
