Roman Holiday meets Romani hustle

Precocious 14-year-old Pio Amato wants nothing more than to convince his family that he is a grown man, and when his father and older brother are thrown in jail for stealing electricity, he appoints himself the head of the household. When Pio strikes up a friendship with Ayiva from Burkina Faso, his life takes an interesting turn. In his follow-up to the critically acclaimed MEDITERRANEA (2015), Jonas Carpignano depicts life among Romani people and African immigrants on the tip of the Italian boot with aesthetic perfection and pace.
