The Last Docking - stories of abandoned seafares -

Director: Emiliano Pappacena - Anna Maria Selini.
In ports all over the world, alongside cargo and tourist ships, there are also vessels that have not been operated for months, if not for years. These abandoned ships are left moored to rust by their shipowners, often never to be recovered, because of financial distress, security issues or seizure. The problem is that in most cases the whole crew is still on board. These seafarers, who were recruited months before with a valid employment contract, suddenly find themselves thousands of kilometres from home, without food, water and, ever worse, pay cheque. This TV report was made by Emiliano Pappacena and Anna Maria Selini in collaboration with Antonio Demma.
