Executive producer Martin Scorsese presents the electrifying sophomore feature from rising director Jonas Carpignano (Mediterranea). 14-year-old Pio (Pio Amato) wants nothing more than the respect of his older brother, whom he emulates in every way—including his career as a petty criminal. When both his father and brother are arrested, Pio is determined to prove that he can step up and be the head of his sprawling Romani family. But a fateful night and a wrenching decision soon test just how ready he is. Steeped in the complex social fabric of Southern Italy—where Italians, Romani, and African migrants coexist in uneasy tension—A Ciambra is a bracing plunge into a world in which growing up fast is a matter of survival.

“Through Tim Curtin’s kinetic handheld camerawork, Carpignano immerses the viewer in Pio’s experience.”—Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
“Viewers interested in a rarely-documented side of life will get caught up in this frank portrayal of a boy who’s not sure how to be a man.”—Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
