A hallucinatory and chilling odyssey through the hopeful eyes of the young migrants, from Gomorrah director Matteo Garrone.
Inspired by myths and true stories, director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Dogman) takes the viewer in Io Capitano on a deeply moving journey of two teenage boys, who leave their family in Senegal to pursue their dream of a better life in Europe . Their modern-day Odyssey takes them through the suffocating desert and over the stormy sea. They start their journey as humans, but soon transform into commodities for the human smugglers, where their dreams, hopes and ambitions must make way for a struggle for survival.
Won the Silver Lion for Best Director in Venice.
There are no new dates planned (yet) for Io Capitano.
