Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Italian-American filmmaker Jonas Carpignano’s impressive second feature (following 2015’s Mediterranea) has a verité documentary style that adds considerable weight and drama to an already stark and moving coming of age film.
A Ciambra had it's world premiere at the 2017 Cannes film festival -Quinzaine des reàlisateurs where it won the Europa Cinema Label prize for best European film. The film won numerous awards and prizes in addition to earning Carpignano a nomination for best director at the Independent Spirit Awards.
Set in a Calambrian Romani community in Italy, A Ciambra follows a 14-year-old boy as he negotiates life on the edge of society.
Moving easily between the various local groups - Italians, African immigrants and his own Romani community - Pio is keen to be seen as grown up and in control when his beloved older brother is sent to prison, assumes a new position as the head of the family. But as his efforts to gain ground increasingly lead down a dangerous path, he must choose between loyalty to his family and his friends.
