The Ciambra (A Ciambra)

Pio is a 14-year-old teenager living in a Romani community in southern Italy who is eager to prove that he can be a man.

When his older brother disappears, Pio takes it upon himself to become the breadwinner for his large family, a role that leads him into dangerous territory as his small-time criminal undertakings eventually attract unwanted attention.

In The Ciambra American-Italian director Jonas Carpignano revisits Pio, a secondary character from his highly acclaimed Mediterranea, but this time placing him at the centre of the story.

Carpignano shoots in a naturalistic documentary-style manner and uses non-professionals actors (including members of a whole Romani family) to deliver this gritty and realistic coming-of-age tale.
