Dir : Goran Paskaljevic / 100 mins / Italy / English / 2019
According to Interpol, over ten thousand refugees of minors without parental care are wandering today in Europe, half of which are on Italian roads. “Despite the Fog” is a movie story about one of them. In short: Ali-Musa Sarhan, a refugee whose parents drowned while traveling by rubber boat on the Italian coast in search of a better life, is accepted by family, husband and wife who have lost a child. They are trying to find solace in little Arab and a sort of replacement for their early deceased son, Mark. Valeriaand Paolo are increasingly confronted with resistance from the environment and their own family, who do not accept their decision to keep Muhammad – It is also a story of a world that is increasingly sinking into xenophobic fog.
