These migrants filmed themselves along their harrowing journey from Sub Saharan Africa to Italy


The danger and often deadly exhaustion of a migrant’s journey is difficult to convey to the rest of the world. In 2010, filmmaker Luca Cusani took a creative approach by curating videos he found on the internet made by the migrants themselves. Cusani, working with the nonprofit Naga, spliced short mobile phone videos together taken along the harrowing journey, often on foot, from Sub Saharan Africa to Libya, then across the Mediterranean Sea by boat to Italy. A longer version of this video first appeared on Italy’s national TV and radio broadcasts. This video contains disturbing images.
