Ringolevio

Directed by Kristin Peterson Kaszubowski
Feature Narative
USA | 80 min | 2020

Ada, a reserved young woman with a passion for entomology travels north with Marissa, her free-spirited musician girlfriend. She’s finally ‘meeting the family’ – the three brothers who helped raise Marissa – the paternal Ozzie, sensitive Arthur, and wild child Wren. As Marissa and her kin settle into their familiar familial dynamics, Ada finds herself on the outside looking in. Desperate to make a good impression over the course of a weekend packed with fun and frivolity, Ada instead struggles to find common ground, opening fissures in the one relationship she needs the most. Funny, lacerating, and tender (often in the same scene), Ringolevio is a sensitive and incisive look at the games we play when trying to connect with one another.

Ringolevio Movie Poster | Kristin Peterson, Director
The current project utilizes Camarda’s direct cinematic approach to expand upon broader tangible economic issues facing our evolving technological landscape. He highly values the Creative Commons work he was able to utilize in his own films over the years and wanted to take a deep dive into the world of technology, music, and video production. As an artist and content creator, Camarda brings experience from both sides of the issue to the table and appreciates the engagement he’s received from across the globe..
