Camden Conference is screening supporter of CIFF documentary-PESCATORI DI CORPI (FISHING BODIES)
September 16, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The film follows the crew of the Alba Angela, a clandestine fishing boat, as their destinies cross path with Ahmed, a refugee who now lives illegally on the boat that, before becoming his home and prison, brought others like him to Sicily. An intimate portrait of indifference in the face of immigration.
The screening takes place on Friday, September 16, 12:30 p.m. at the Camden Opera House and will include a post-film Q & A with director Michele Pennetta facilitated by Sandra Ruch of the Camden Conference. Admission is $10.00 or included with the purchase of a CIFF All Access or Festival Pass. For more information, please visit https://pointsnorthinstitute.org/ciff/.
