Sunday 30 October 2022, Cinema Italia: Selfie (Agostino Ferrente, 2019), 78 minutes. In Neapolitan and Italian with English subtitles. Doors open at 20:00, Film starts at 20:30.

This documentary has been shot by Neapolitan teenagers living in Traiano, a neighbourhood where Camorra, the local Mafia, is an everyday presence. And yet their stories tell not only about violence but also friendship, hope, and intimate relations. The director gave a phone to them, letting them choose the way to tell their lives. A film made possible by smartphones only, where subjectivity and objectivity are inextricably intertwined in a unique mix, that opens a window to an angle of the world otherwise impossible to see for outsiders.

Film night at Joe’s Garage, cozy cinema! Free entrance. You want to screen a movie, let us know: joe [at] lists [dot] squat [dot] net
