LampeduSani (the people of the island of Lampedusa, trans.’s note) is the title of the documentary by Costanza Quatriglio for TV2000. It’s a 20-minute story suspended between nature and poetry, to learn more about the people of Lampedusa and the distinguishing traits of their vocation to welcoming visitors. The personal stories, intertwined with the setting of this extraordinary island and sea, are narrated by the director, and by renowned writer Erri De Luca. These stories develop into a journey across places of sorrow, suffered landings, endless waiting… but also joy, rescue and hope. Thus “LampeduSani”, is a short film on encounter, on recognising and opening up to others – to the stranger and to diversity – overcoming all fears.
