Italy’s Official Oscar Submission! Los Angeles Premiere!

2017, Sundance Selects, 117 min, Italy, Dir: Jonas Carpignano

Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, this keenly observed drama from Jonas Carpignano revisits characters from his debut, MEDITERRANEA. At its center is Pio Amato, a 14-year-old boy living on the poor side of a Calabrian town, where frictions between Italians, gypsies and African immigrants run high, and petty crime is a way of life. Carpignano elicits terrific performances from the predominantly nonprofessional cast, aided by Tim Curtin's fluid cinematography. “A coming-of-age drama with a stealthy emotional charge that further enhances the writer-director's reputation as a gifted practitioner of Italian neo-neorealism.” - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.

In Italian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
