Synopsis

The Interval
17-year-old Salvatore, or Toto as he is nicknamed, spends his days selling lemon crushed-ice from a cart in a run-down area of Naples. When he sets out for work on what appears to be a regular day, he is forcefully enlisted by the local Camorra boss, Bernardino to guard 15-year-old wild child Veronica for the day in a dilapidated cavernous warehouse. Reflecting the omnipresent power of criminals that resides beneath the buff and shine of Silvio Berlusconi’s Italy, The Interval received accolades
worldwide, including Best Film at the 2012 Venice Film Festival.

Gomorrah
Matteo Garrone’s Gomorrah is a stark, shocking vision of contemporary gangsterdom, and one of cinema’s most authentic depictions of organized crime. In this tour de force adaptation of undercover Italian reporter Roberto Saviano’s best-selling exposé
of Naples’ Mafia underworld (known as the Camorra), Garrone links five disparate tales in which men and children are caught up in a corrupt system that extends from the housing projects to the world of haute couture. Filmed with an exquisite detachment interrupted by bursts of violence, Gomorrah is a shattering, socially engaged true-crime story from a then major new voice in Italian cinema.
