A Ciambra



A Ciambra

 2018 Oscar® Selection, Italy

As part of the 30th Edition of the AFI European Union Film Showcase, Italy presents the screening of A Ciambra.

Pio Amato is a canny 14-year-old growing up fast in an extended Romani family. Pio is already adept at surviving on the streets of his tough Calabria hometown — he drinks, he smokes, he knows how to be a good lookout — but when his older brother and father are rounded up by the police, Pio sets out to prove he's ready to fend for his family. As Pio comes of age, director Jonas Carpignano simultaneously offers a broader examination of social, racial and economic inequity on the fringes of southern Italian society.

Winner, Europa Cinemas Label Award, 2017 Cannes Directors' Fortnight; Official Selection, 2017 Karlovy Vary, Toronto, London, Chicago film festivals.
