Seydou and Moussa, two Senegalese teenagers, leave Dakar to travel to Europe where they believe opportunities await. On a journey neither could have imagined, the boys face the dangers and the beauty of the desert, the shock of detention centres in Libya, and the perils of the sea in their pursuit of a better life, in an epic story that offers a deeply human perspective on the migrant crisis.

Directed by two-time BAFTA-nominee Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales), IO CAPITANO was nominated for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards, and won Best Director and Best Young Actor Awards at Venice Film Festival.
