In October 2013, 360 Eritrean refugees drowned off the coast of Lampedusa. Chaos breaks loose at the harbour as hundreds of coffins are being loaded onto a military ship.


Morgan Knibbe graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy with his short film A Twist in the Fabric of Space (2012) selected for IDFA. Shipwreck is his second film.
