Featuring post-screening masterclass with director Agostino Ferrente.
In this funny and original film, teenagers and best friends Pietro and Allesandro make a selfie-style documentary about their rough Naples neighbourhood in the wake of local police killing their friend.
Accepting director Agostino Ferrente’s proposal to film themselves with an iPhone, they document every minute of their lives: dreaming, fantasising, sweating and having fun, but also losing hope. The result is an impressive collage about adolescence; about lives where your background determines your future; about anger and grief; but above all about a tender boyhood friendship in a male world where toughness reigns.
