La Nave will premiere at the Architecture Filmfestival Rotterdam, 10 October 2020 at 14:45 in Lantaren Venster (zaal 1). The next day at 12:30 there will be a second screening, also in Lantaren Venster (zaal 1).
La Nave (The Ship) tells the story of the prominent social housing project The Vele of Scampia in the times before its upcoming demolition. This location gained the fame of the organised crime centre of Naples. The film however introduces another perspective. It deconstructs the architectural landscape of the area (four huge iconic buildings), while giving the spotlight to its inhabitants. An 80 year old former teacher, an ex-Camorra member and a young boxer share their views on the life of Scampia.
It took 3 years to complete this project, and I am very happy to invite you to the premiere of my first film La Nave at the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2020 (AFFR).
About the festival:
The twelfth edition of AFFR will take place from 7 to 11 October 2020 in LantarenVenster.
