A Chiara + Intro

Dir. Jonas Carpignano
year | 121 mins | Italy, France
Italian (Neapolitan dialect) with English subtitles
Swamy Rotolo, Claudio Rotolo, Carmela Fumo

The Guerrasio family and friends gather to celebrate Claudio and Carmela’s oldest daughter’s 18th birthday. There is a healthy rivalry between the birthday girl and her 15-year-old sister Chiara as they compete on the dancefloor. It is a happy occasion, and the close-knit family are on top form. However, everything changes the next day when the father disappears. Chiara, unconvinced by the cover story, starts to investigate. As she gets closer to the truth, she is forced to decide what kind of future she wants for herself.

Fresh out of last year’s festival run, where it picked up serveral awards including Best European film at Cannes, A CHIARA is the closing part of a trilogy by Jonas Carpignano (MEDITERRANEA , A CIAMBRA). Connecting specific themes together this last edition presents captivating, nocturnal images and explores youthful energy, family relationship and temptation through teenage eyes.
