Io Capitano 15

Two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.

Capturing the contemporary immigrant experience from the perspective of those making the crossing through Africa and into Europe, Io Capitano is equal parts action-adventure, road movie and coming-of-age drama, primarily told in the Wolof language.

Nominated for Best International Feature Film at the 2024 Academy Awards and Best Motion Picture (Non English Language at the 2024 Golden Globes).

Languages: Wolof and French with English subtitles
