Mediterranea, the feature debut by Jonas Carpignano, who won the Discovery Award at Cannes with his short A Ciambra, is among the three films that are finalists for the 2015 LUX Prize.

It tells the story of the journey undertaken by two men from Burkina Faso to Italy, where they will meet up once again in Rosarno, Calabria, at the time of the intense revolt of 2010.
