Sundance Selects has acquired all North American rights to Jonas Carpignano’s A CIAMBRA, which is executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

The film premiered this week in Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight program, this gritty coming-of-age film focuses on a small Romani community in Calabria where a 14-year-old tries to step into his brother’s shoes when the brother disappears and things start to go wrong.

Scorsese said:

“Jonas Carpignano’s A CIAMBRA is a compelling and accomplished film. The world is so realize, so intimate, that I felt as if I was living alongside its characters and Carpignano himself. What he does with his young lead, drawing from him a mature and complex performance, is truly remarkable. A moving and beautiful picture.”

Carpignano said:

“F-k yeah! The road to Cannes has been a long and wonderful journey with many people, particularly the Amato family. After working together on my first film MEDITERRANEA, I’m really happy that Sundance Selects has been so enthusiastic about working together again.”

Jonathan Sehring and Lisa Schwartz, co-Presidents of IFC Films/Sundance Selects said:

“With his debut film, Jonas Carpignano quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new directors in the world. A CIAMBRA represents the best of what cinema can show us about different cultures colliding and a young boy coming-of-age, giving us hope for the future. We are thrilled to be working with Jonas again and the entire producing team.”
