Fires at Sea: Italy and the Migration Crisis

Fires at Sea: Italy and the Migration Crisis

Mason's Italian Program has organized a film and lecture series on Italy and migration. Co-sponsored by the Department of Modern and Classical Languages (MCL), the Department of Sociology and Anthropology (SOAN), the Global Affairs Program (GLOA), the Film and Media Studies Program, and the Visiting Filmmakers Series, Fires at Sea: Italy and the Migration Crisis comprises three linked events on September 25, October 23, and November 13.

The first event, September 25, is a screening of Fuocoammare, a recent documentary on the topic. It will be introduced by experts in the field, Professors Cynthia Fuchs (English) and Nicola Di Nino (MCL), with question and answer sessions afterwards.

The second event, October 23, is a roundtable discussion with a group of Mason faculty members from across the college: Anne Schiller (SOAN), Niklas Hultin (GLOA), Jennifer Ashley (GLOA), Jonathon Repinecz (MCL), and Nicola Di Nino (MCL), who will all share their diverse disciplinary perspectives.

The third event, November 13, is a screening of Aulò. Like Fuocoammare, Aulò is a recent documentary that will be introduced by Professors Fuchs and Di Nino, with time for questions and answers following the film.

Each event takes place at 4:30pm in the JC Cinema.
