"Mediterranea," a first feature by U.S.-Italian director Jonas Carpignano, follows Abas and Ayiva, two Africans as they make an odyssey to Europe – and to disillusionment.It starts in Algeria and moves to Libya, a staging point for some of the many perilous cross-Mediterranean boat trips being made by hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees each year. The story is inspired by Seihon's own true-to-life story. Born in Ghana, he first traveled to Burkina Faso after the death of his father then transited through Africa to Libya, where he boarded a migrant boat for Italy.The movie enjoyed its world premiere at the Semaine de la Critique, a parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival in May.
