'Fire at Sea' Deserves to be Seen & Oscar-Nominated

Put Italy's submission for the best foreign language film at this year's Oscars on your must-see list.

Thanks to the San Francisco Film Society's second annual Doc Stories series at the Vogue Theater, I had the welcomed experience of seeing "Fire at Sea" in early November with an appreciate audience.

After the screening, the director Gianfranco Rosi engaged with the audience inside the theater and out on the street, where I caught up with him.

Sad to say, the distributor Kino-Lorber has no current plans to bring the film to the Bay Area. Let's hope they change their minds. Click here to see where "Fire at Sea" is playing in coming weeks.

Check out my vid and hear a few wise words from director Rosi.
