Synopsis

No forethought, just the search for a feeling; a paradoxical combination without apparent sense; dance movements, martial arts sequences. Despite their apparent extroversion, people in Naples experience their real feelings by hiding them behind a mask, with discretion and nobility. While many have defined Naples as a place of life and joy, it is actually a sublime tale of death.

Gabriele di Munzio

Gabriele di Munzio (Naples, Italy, 1972) studied photography and film editing in London from 1993 to 1995, and developed an interest in theater thanks to a number of seminars held at the Peter Brook and Eugenio Barba research centers and at Teatro Valdoca. In 2001, he started making several documentaries in the Poitou-Charentes region, and he moved on to video-theater shorts in 2005. He created the association Cantine1901 in 2007, which produced his short Riviera 91, winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Torino Film Festival. Two years later, he received the same award for Occhio di vetro cuore non dorme (2011). He then returned to the Torino Film Festival with Corpo familiare in 2014, and with TanjaTales in 2016.

Director statement

“Racconti di cenere e lapilli isn’t about Naples. It’s the search for a feeling, one of the many inhabiting the city’s streets (specifically a few neighborhoods in the historic center). It’s about theater, which the city naturally produces, drawing inspiration from Giambattista Basile’s fairytales Cunto de li cunti, where sublime language and crude jokes intertwine and feed off one another.”
