Naples: a city of culture and creativity, but also of chaos and criminal dereliction. With the gaze of a foreigner who loves the Mediterranean city, after going there regularly for two years, Trudie Styler challenged herself making a documentary that would depict the contrasts of beauty and sorrow, of light and darkness that characterize a unique town. Letting the local people tell their own story, she unveils a world in which generosity and cruelty, lights and shadows coexist. A multi-faceted and many-voiced portrait featuring rev. Antonio Loffredo, the rebellious and enlightened parish priest of the Sanità neighbourhood, actor Francesco Di Leva, founder of Teatro NEST in San Giovanni a Teduccio, writer Roberto Saviano, and artist Jorit, but also the “strong warriors” who fight for the women, the roast chestnut peddlers, and Antonio, a veteran of the WWII Four Days of Naples. Not to mention Sting who executes “Fragile” for the convicts of the Secondigliano jail. (a.s.)

The event is finished.
