Short documentary: 'Eighteen'

The last time Filmmaker Joost van Beek was in Sicily he was eighteen years old. As a teenager he reluctantly visited old temples and mostly slept a lot. Now he speaks with migrants Amadou and Boubacar, both eighteen, who are trying to live their lives in the Sicilian capital Palermo. And that is not always easy. Despite everything, they remain positive. "We should be grateful for the little blessings."

This film was made during the Lost in Europe Summer School 2019 in Sicily.
