The Ciambra

Director: Jonas Carpignano | Italy 2018 | 118 minutes | Cert 15

In a small Romani community in Calabria, Pio is desperate to grow up and prove he can step into his imprisoned older brother’s shoes. At 14, he drinks, smokes, and generally navigates his way between the region’s factions – the Italians, the African refugees and his fellow Romani – but soon finds himself faced with a wrenching moral dilemma.

With non-professional actors playing versions of themselves, this vibrant, gritty film offers an unflinching and spirited portrayal of life in a marginalised community.

Winner: Label Europa Cinemas Prize, Cannes 2017

“A wildly impressive amateur cast … have created an impossibly gripping fiction” Kevin Maher, The Times

The much loved “Bean-o-meter” is an essential market research tool. After each film members are asked to vote from 1* to 5* by placing a kidney bean in the lovingly hand-crafted wooden collecting box.
