About this Event

Join us for a free screening of IO CAPITANO hosted by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in th UK in collaboration with Royal Museums Greenwich as part of our Refugee Week 2024 events, shedding light on some of the most pressing issues of our time. IO CAPITANO tells the story of Seydou and Moussa, two Senegalese teenagers who leave Dakar to travel to Europe where they believe opportunities await. On a journey neither could have imagined, the two boys face the dangers and the beauty of the desert, the shock of detention centres in Libya, and the perils of the sea in their pursuit of a better life, in an epic story that offers a deeply human perspective on migration journeys.

Directed by two-time BAFTA-nominee Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales), IO CAPITANO has been nominated for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards, and won Best Director and Best Young Actor Awards at Venice Film Festival.

While having the opportunity to experience the Oscar-nominated film, "IO CAPITANO," in the spectacular riverside setting of the Cutty Sark, this exclusive event will offer attendees the chance to visit a special installation by IOM in collaboration with Royal Museums Greenwich on the topic of , drawing attention to the many lives lost during migration journeys—most of them at sea.


Missing Migrants: 63,000 lives to many

Throughout history, migration has been a courageous expression of people’s resolve to overcome adversity and to live a better life. Every year, however, thousands of people, including women and children, pay the ultimate price, perishing while fleeing violence, poverty, and the impact of climate change. From the English Channel to the Sahara Desert these tragedies are worldwide and preventable. Yet, there is little information about the true scale of the problem and who these migrants are.

Since 2014, the Missing Migrants Project, an initiative by the International Organization for Migration (IOM)s Global Data Institute has recorded deaths and disappearances on migration routes worldwide. The project began after two tragic shipwrecks which claimed the lives of more than 600 people off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa. The project remains the only global open-access database of migrant deaths and disappearances, compiling information from governments, United Nations officials, civil society organisations and migrants themselves.

The data is made widely available to raise awareness of the issue and call for action.
