Since the early 2010s and in response to a rising level of youth crime, the Italian justice system has operated under a policy that allows courts to remove high-risk children from families involved in organised crime. At risk is Entoni, a rambunctious 12-year-old boy, a mischievous but sweet fixture in Naples' Spanish Quarters.

His grandmother Dora is determined to steer him towards the right track despite her own criminal past. Stunningly shot and featuring unparalleled access to the world of inner-city Naples, Nascondino (Hide and Seek) captures the spirit and soul of a neighbourhood that finds itself both maligned and glamorised. A mythological and spiritual portrait of a community's hopes and regrets, its search for redemption and the importance of family in Neapolitan life.

“An accomplished and involving picture… (a) remarkable feature documentary debut” (Wendy Ide, Screen Daily)

DocNights, in collaboration with Sheffield DocFest, is a monthly screening of documentary films taking place on the last Monday of every month.
