The Human Cargo

La nave dolce

Directed by Daniele Vicari
Italy, Albania, 2012


On 8 August 1991 an Albanian ship carrying 20,000 people reaches the port of Bari. The ship is called the Vlora. If you look at it closely it looks like a teeming ant colony, an indistinct mass of bodies hanging on to each other.
