To honor the third anniversary of the drowning of 368 African immigrant at the dock of Lampedusa, Italian TV last night broadcast the Oscar nominated film Fuocoammare, Fire at Sea, filmed on Lampedusa. It does not have much distribution in the US. It was a beautiful sad poem. Like nothing I had ever seen before.
I am in Sicily for ten days. Right now I am staying with friends in Catania. Later tday I head to Favignana. It is still very hot and humid here. Back in Vermont my basil plants already froze a week ago.
