Crater

by Silvia Luzi & Luca Bellino

Synopsis

 

Rosario works as a street seller on the fairgrounds of the suburbs of Naples.

His dream to escape poverty latches onto the musical talent of his daughter Sharon. Fascinated by the video images of his teenage daugher, he turns into an impresario to make her a star of the Italian folk music.

Between documentary and realistic tale, Crater portrays the ambitions of a father against the freedom of his daughter.
