Coming of Age, Drama
Italian (English subtitles)
Rooted in the tradition of neo-realism, this drama is set in a Romani community in southern Italy. Pio is 14 years old and eager to be treated as a grown up. Drinking, smoking and moving between his own community, local Italians and a group of African immigrants, Pio learns the ways of the local streets through his older brother, Cosimo. After Cosimo is sent to prison Pio assumes the position as head of the family. But his efforts to prove himself lead Pio down an increasingly dangerous path, culminating in an impossible choice. Influenced by the early work of executive producer Martin Scorsese, 'A Ciambra' presents complex, unsentimental portraits of communities rarely seen on screen, and uses unprofessional actors from the local area to play the Romani family.
