Located 110 km off the coast of Africa, the island of Lampedusa is obliged to act as the gateway to Europe. During the winter, no tourists travel here, nor TV crews; all that remains is a small community and rescued refugees. Careful observation of everyday details and dramatic situations map both the refugee crisis and the struggle of the fishermen to get a new ferry.


Austrian artist Jakob Brossmann (1986) focuses on film, photography, theatre, and visual arts. His filmography includes Rückruf (2010) and Tagwerk  (2011) Lampedusa in Winter was screened as part of the Critics’ Week section at the Locarno Film Festival, where it won the Boccalino Prize for best film.
