Chiara Tripaldi studied screenwriting in Milan and documentary filmmaking in New York.

"Controra" is a travel-documentary about a city, Taranto, famous above all for the pollution of the Ilva River. Within its perimeter several resistant energies are born: they try to redraw the limits, creating social and cultural spaces. Max, Mirko, Cosimo and Giovanni guide me inside Taranto, the city where I was born and that I left, when I was a child, suddenly. "Controra" is my act of love for her.
