La Pivellina (trailer)
A beautifully crafted tale of three outsiders who take in an abandoned girl in the caravan-ghettos outside of Rome. While searching for the child’s mother, two circus performers and their teenage neighbor create a spontaneous yet strong family. Wonderfully acted by actual circus performers and a two-year-old girl, La Pivellina is a touching depiction of outsider status in Berlusconi’s Italy.
