The small island of Linosa off Sicily is inhabited by a small fishing community. The order of families, who have a happy and orderly life, is disrupted as illegal immigrants start to come to the island. The family of fishermen take an Ethiopian woman and her young child home, even if it is illegal, after they manage to escape from a sinking ship. Life for this small fisherman family will never be as comfortable as it used to be. Because their boats are confiscated and the woman who starts living in their house gives birth. Italy's 2012 Oscar-nominated Terraferma is a survivalist film about immigration and morality. Competing in the 31st Istanbul Film Festival Human Rights in Cinema Competition, Terraferma received the UNICEF Award as well as the Special Jury Award in Venice in 2011.Written by
Another Liberal take on how allowing foreigners to invade your country, water down your society, take your land, take your women and destroy your traditions is somehow the "Human" thing to do. Read history to find out what the "Human" thing to do is when people invade your country, it's alot bloodier than the Hippy vision of a communist society where everyone gets along and all cultures disappear and we have only 1 people left in the world to sell McDonalds to. That is the future this movie tries too sell and ignores the fact that "Diversity" in the world s allowing people to exist in their own country. When I travel to Italy I want to be greated by Italians, Africa, Africans, America, Americans, etc etc. This new vision of "diversity" is nothing but every race/creed/culture lumped together in one country to the point that there IS no diversity and we all become 1 indistinct race that the News and Big Business can sell their products too easier because we've become 1 demographic. No thank you that is not human that is the opposite of human that is turning humanity into a herd of sheep and is NOT a future that I look forward to or would in any way condone.
