A letter to Nicola

A letter to Nicola

by Hara Kaminara


This film is revisiting my experience on board the Aquarius, a search and rescue ship operating in the central Mediterranean Sea. I had joined the crew as the photographer in order to document their missions. After my last disembarkation I found out I was pregnant.  Shortly after, due to political pressures the ship was forced to stop operations. That’s when I decided to make this film, a letter to my yet unborn son about the state of the world around the moment of his birth.
