A day in the life of Bilu and João, two enterprising young children struggling to get by on the streets of São Paulo.

Ciro directed by Stefano Veneruso
Ciro is a kid from the outskirts of Naples. He lives in one of those cement housing projects built after the earthquake of 1980. Along with his friend Bertucciello, Ciro assaults a motorist in order to steal his Rolex. It’s a co-ordinated attack composed of two simultaneous but separate actions. Ciro smashes one of the vehicle’s windows with a hammer, glass flying everywhere, while Bertucciello grabs hold of the man’s watch and rips it away from his wrist. The two kids run in separate directions towards the unforeseen – looking for a real childhood.
