La Chimera

Milwaukee Film Festival

Everyone has their own Chimera, something they try to achieve but never manage to find. For the band of tombaroli, thieves of ancient grave goods and archaeological wonders, the Chimera means redemption from work and the dream of easy wealth. For Arthur, the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina. Festival darling Alice Rohrwacher directs the ragtag cast through this archaeological mystery, featuring turns from the great Isabella Rosselini and Josh O'Connor (THE CROWN, CHALLENGERS).
