Io Capitano

FromMatteo Garrone

WithSeydou Sarr, Moustapha Fall, Issaka Sawadogo u.a.



Senegalese teenagers Seydou and Moussa leave their home in Dakar to emigrate to Europe.

The two teenagers want to live in Europe and become famous as musicians. Their desire, along with the prospect of a better life, is so great that one day they throw all warnings to the wind and set off for Italy full of adventure. But their journey is not the road trip they had imagined. The journey through the desert, the Libyan prisons and even the sea crossing turn out to be life-threatening. The two friends not only have to fight for their dream, but also for their survival...
IO CAPITANO accompanies the two friends Seydou and Moussa on an incredible odyssey from Senegal to Europe. Inspired by testimonials, award-winning director Matteo Garrone (GOMORRAH, PINOCCHIO) tells the part of the story we should know with epic images.

IO CAPITANO celebrated its world premiere at the 80th Venice International Film Festival, where it was honoured with the Silver Lion for Best Director. The film was also nominated for the European Film Award, the Golden Globe and the Oscar.
