African migrant workers follow the seasons through Southern Italy, harvesting oranges, tomatoes and olives. They are paid little and live in substandard conditions. The film shows life in an experimental camp set up by a local municipality in Western Sicily. Despite all best intentions, the camp is still very inadequate.

A live discussion with the filmmakers will take place on Zoom on Wednesday 24 March, 15:30 - 15:55 UTC. Find the roundtable abstract and a link to join the live discussion here.

Please note, we are taking Zoom security seriously to ensure a safe space for discussion. Everyone wishing to join the live discussion will need to have a verified Zoom account. Sign up for free here.
