Io Capitano tells the story of Seydou and Moussa, two Senegalese teenagers who leave Dakar to travel to Europe where they believe opportunities await. On a journey neither could have imagined, the boys face the dangers of the desert and the perils of the sea in an epic coming-of-age tale that offers a deeply human perspective on the migrant crisis.

Directed by two-time BAFTA-nominee Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales), Io Capitano received the Silver Lion and Best Young Actor Awards at Venice Film Festival and has been nominated for the 2023 Academy Awards in the Best International Film category.
