Case Study: A Ciambra

Friday 7 July, 10–11am / Industry Pool, Hotel Thermal

With his second feature film, A Ciambra, Italian-American director Jonas Carpignano (Mediterranea) continues to explore the southern Italian province of Calabria by creating close-up portraits of its inhabitants. The film is the result of long and meticulous preparatory work involving observation, analysis and writing – its script was developed within TorinoFilmLab, the international laboratory based in Turin, Italy. A Ciambra is the result of an unusual production structure: it is a Brazilian production, with co-producers from the United States, Italy, Germany, France and Sweden. Another major novelty is its financing plan, as this is the first film ever to receive support from the newly launched Martin Scorsese fund. TFL Artistic Director Matthieu Darras will interview the director, focusing on these innovations and on Jonas’s work all the way from script to screen.
