NEW YORK, NY - June 21, 2016 - Raro Video and Kino Lorber are proud to announce the Blu-ray release of Abel Ferrara's Napoli Napoli Napoli, which combines fiction and reality into a cinematic mosaic set against the backdrop of the city. Narrated by the director himself, the film follows a young woman on her journey through Naples, encountering various characters that emphasize the class differences that exist throughout the city.
Napoli Napoli Napoli will become available on Blu-ray July 12 2016, with a SRP of $29.95, in a new HD transfer with new and improved English subtitle translation. Special features include the making-of documentary "Backstage" (33:53), the original trailer, and a fully illustrated booklet
With his crooked face and rough demeanor Abel Ferrara looks and act like he could have been born in Naples, Italy, the subject and location of his raw and "hyperreality" film Napoli Napoli Napoli. Inspired by real events, this docudrama, narrated by the director, depicts a young woman metaphysically lost in the passionate and vibrant streets of Naples. Ferrara takes the viewer through the neighborhoods and parks of Naples while starkly showing the division between the classes. The undercurrent of characters associated with a women's prison penetrate the narrative with a message of injustice and despair. Though criticized by some for its harsh representation of the city, the outcome is a portrayal of a city that no one has yet figured out, and that so many love, but also criticize; a city that has much to discover, but can never be known well enough. Ferrara depicts Naples through the words of the excluded and marginalized, portraying the chaotic mosaic of the Neopolitan universe with lucidity and love, characteristics that only he knows how to express with such intensity and immediacy.
