Competing in the World Dramatic Competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, “Cloro” marks the debut feature of Italian writer-director Lamberto Sanfelice. Although he only has three previous short films to his name, one in his home country and two during a summer stint at NYU, Sanfelice’s emotional first feature, which will also play at Berlinale, has many anticipating a breakthrough for the up-and-coming director.
“Cloro” stars Sara Serraiocco as Jenny, a 17-year-old with dreams of becoming a synchronized swimmer. When family events turn her life upside down, she is forced to move to a remote location and tend to her ill father and young brother. Caught between the responsibility of her family and the prospects of her own dreams, it won’t be long before Jenny is forced to put her future together.
