The Italian documentary film Fire at Sea won the Golden Bear, the top jury prize awarded to the best film, in the 66th Berlin International Film Festival on Saturday.

In the documentary film Fire at Sea, Italian director Gianfranco Rosi captured with camera the daily life of the Italian island of Lampedusa where refugees and islanders live together but in two completely different worlds.

In the past 20 years, large numbers of refugees from North Africa and other places got there by boat, hoping to enter the European continent.
