Io Capitano

Directed by Matteo Garrone
Theatrical Release Date February 23, 2024
Run Time 121 min

In this acclaimed film which won top directing and acting prizes at the Venice Film Festival, writer-director Garrone presents a “reverse shot” of the immigration experience while unfurling an epic, cinematographically magnificent odyssey from West Africa to Italy. The story is told through the mind’s eye and experiences of two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar who yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.

Nominated for "Best International Feature Film" at the 2024 Academy Awards
 
Nominated for "Best Motion Picture - Non-English Language" at the 2024 Golden Globes
 

"A grand, honestly felt emotional sweep... Garrone's most robust, purely satisfying filmmaking since his international breakthrough with Gomorrah 15 years ago."
— Variety
