Storyline

Naples, Traiano district. Initially it had to be a temporary peripheral destination for the inhabitants of the slums on the seafront of Naples, left homeless after the war. But the lodgings were permanently occupied, including the basement cellars, and soon the district became a sort of ghetto. Alessandro and Pietro are two 16-years-olds who film themselves with a smartphone to tell their difficult neighborhood, their everyday life, the friendship that binds them. They also tell of the tragedy of Davide, their neighbor who was killed innocent by a policeman after a chase, because he was mistaken for a fleeing wanted. He was sixteen too. It happened to Davide, but it could also happen to Alessandro or Pietro - That's why the director gave them his smartphone, asking them to film themselves in "selfie" mode, as if they looked in a mirror themselves, their world, their life. A film made entirely of looks, that tells a world where becoming a Camorra mobster is not a choice, but a fate ...

Hope.
24 March 2020 | by ayhansalamciSee all my reviews

I had no idea what kind of documentary it was before I watched Selfie. You will watch the story of two friends and what is going on around them. I can say that there is pure sincerity and sometimes sadness from the very beginning to the end.

It looks like neighborhoods where I was born and grew up. I understand the difficulties, livelihoods and life struggles of people. In this world, unfortunately, the pipe of the strong always sounds more and the weak ones are constantly crushed. Even a search for justice. But hope should be every moment and we should never be pessimistic. Whatever happens, justice is taking place one day.

As a result, I can say that I love it and recommend it to those who have not yet watched. I love the city of Naples. It seems very natural to me. We must always have hope.
