In this article, we analyse three different products of Italian contemporary cinematography on Lampedusa: the two award-winning movies Terraferma and Fuocoammare and the TV miniseries Lampedusa. We argue that, with some slight exception for the last of the three, they concur in protraying immigrants as voiceless and history less bypassers, contributing to whitewash the uneven distribution of power in postcolonial world and the violent order in which borders are inscribed.

Abstract

In this article, we analyse three different products of Italian contemporary cinematography on Lampedusa: the two award-winning movies Terraferma and Fuocoammare and the TV miniseries Lampedusa. We argue that, with some slight exception for the last of the three, they concur in protraying immigrants as voiceless and history less bypassers, contributing to whitewash the uneven distribution of power in postcolonial world and the violent order in which borders are inscribed.
