2011, Emanuele Crialese, 88 mins
Crialese’s protagonist is Ernesto (Mimmo Cuticchio), an old-fashioned fisherman on an island that’s quickly turning into a tourist trap. Happening upon an imperiled boatload of African refugees, he selflessly rescues a handful of passengers and hides them from the authorities.
