Jonas Carpignano's A CIAMBRA to represent Italy in the Oscar race!

September 26, 2017

The Commission in charge of selecting the national candidate for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award has deliberated today in Rome that A CIAMBRA by Jonas Carpignano will be representing Italy, and has submitted the title to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

A CIAMBRA, developed at TorinoFilmLab in 2015, is centered around a small Romani community in the Southern Italian town of Gioia Tauro.

Co-produced among others by Martin Scorsese's new fund dedicated to emerging filmmakers, the second feature film of the Italian-American director premiered at Cannes Directors' Fortnight, where it won the Europa Cinemas Label award.
