About the Film:

Part of European Cinema 2018.

Directed by Jonas Carpignano. Italy. 2017. 119 min. Italian with English subtitles. 
Executive producer Martin Scorsese presents the electrifying sophomore feature from rising director Jonas Carpignano (Mediterranea), which was Italy’s 2018 submission for Best Foreign Language Film. Neorealism lives in this film about Pio (Pio Amato), a 14-year-old Roma boy in an impoverished town in southern Italy. He wants nothing more than the respect of his older brother, whom he emulates—including his petty criminal ways. When Pio’s father and brother are arrested, he is determined to prove that he can step up and be the head of his sprawling family. But a fateful night and a wrenching decision test just how ready he is. Steeped in the complex social fabric of the region—where  Italians, Romani, and African migrants coexist in uneasy tension—A Ciambra is a bracing plunge into a world in which growing up fast is a matter of survival. The film won the Europa Cinema Labels Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
