A teenage boy from a Romany community in Calabria is drawn into petty crime to help his family make ends meet.
Described as a modern day BICYCLE THIEVES, Martin Scorsese presents THE CIAMBRA. A small Romani community in Calabria, Pio Amato is desperate to grow up fast. At 14, he drinks smokes and is one of the few to easily slide between the region’s factions – the local Italians, the African refugees and his fellow Romani. Pio follows his older brother Cosimo everywhere, learning the necessary skills for life on the streets of their hometown. When Cosimo disappears and things start to go wrong, Pio sets out to prove he’s ready to step into his big brother’s shoes but soon finds himself faced with an impossible decision that will show if he is truly ready to become a man.
Starring Pio Amato, Koudous Seihon, Damiano Amato

“Writer-director Jonas Carpignano displays a fine feeling for the simple joys and blunt sorrows of life at the margins and a great regard for his compelling young star.” – Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader
