In October 2013 a boat carrying over 550 migrants from North Africa capsized off the Island of Lampedusa, within sight of a tourist beach. 360 people drowned, many of them women and children. Only 155 survived. This film from award winning photographer and film-director Zed Nelson, tells the inside story of the tragedy through the testimony of the survivors and follows Fanus, a teenage survivor – one of thousands of people who flee Eritrea every year in search of asylum.

This film was commissioned by Channel 4 from a trailer created after Zed’s Photoworks British School at Rome research residency
