Watch Two New Clips From Jonas Carpignano's THE CIAMBRA

A pair of new clips from the acclaimed Italian drama.

Made in the vein of classic Italian neo-realism, director Jonas Carpignano's The Ciambra employs a cast of amateur actors to follow the exploits of Pio (Pio Amato), a young Roma boy who finds himself torn between his own community, the local Mafia and African immigrants in his small rural Italian town.

A pair of new clips have been released from the film, which opens in UK cinemas June 15th.

The official synopsis reads:

In 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 regions’ factions - the local mafias, the African immigrants 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 and in the process he must decide if he is truly ready to become a man.
