Io Capitano

Directed by Matteo Garrone

Io Capitano tells the story of Seydou and Moussa, two Senegalese teenagers who leave Dakar to travel to Europe where they believe opportunities await.

On a journey neither could have imagined, the boys face the dangers of the desert and the perils of the sea in an epic coming-of-age tale that offers a deeply human perspective on the migrant crisis.
