From the acclaimed director of GOMORRAH and DOGMAN and drawing parallels to SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, IO CAPITANO narrates the epic journey of a teenage boy and his cousin as they decide to leave Dakar in Senegal for the promise of Europe. Throughout this compelling odyssey, the young man confronts a myriad of challenges, from the harsh realities of the desert to the harrowing experiences in Libyan detention centers and the risks of the open sea. Filmed over a span of 13 weeks in Senegal, Italy, and Morocco, with a cast of non-professional actors, this uplifting film ventures into the intricacies and contradictions of the human experience. Within the narrative, the aspirations, dreams, and ambitions of the main characters evolve into a gripping struggle for survival, reflecting the indomitable spirit of those who dare to seek a better life.

Italy’s submission and nominated for Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards.
