16 Aug SIMSHAR – Rebecca Cremona @ Alexandroupoli: 18/10/15, 20:00 – @ Athens: Alkionis Art Cinema
Synopsis: Based on true events, Simshar tells the story of a traditional Maltese fishing family who are left stranded in open water when an accident occurs on their rickety fishing boat. Meanwhile, also in the Mediterranean Sea, a Turkish merchant vessel rescues African migrants, but cannot disembark when neither Malta nor Italy will accept responsibility. The sea survival stories unravel in parallel and culminate tragically when the fishermen are mistaken for irregular migrants.
