From the director of MEDITERRANEA (2015) comes a new film about a boy coming of age in Reggio Calabria. In a tough neighborhood that mixes Italians, Africans, and Roma, growing up is chaotic business where success is less about money, which is elusive, than about obtaining some degree, or any degree, of empathy. A brilliant character study of friendship, Carpignano's neorealism impressed Martin Scorsese, who agreed to serve as executive producer.
All films will be screened in the Browning Cinema of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. For tickets, contact 574-631-2800 or visit performingarts.nd.edu.
