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. To find her, Arthur challenges the invisible, searches everywhere, goes inside the earth – in search of the door to the afterlife of which myths speak. In an adventurous journey between the living and the dead, between forests and cities, between celebrations and solitudes, the intertwined destinies of these characters unfold, all in search of the Chimera.

Premiering to major success at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Alice Rohrwacher’s rule-breaking, magical film uncovers a world of wonders just below the surface. LA CHIMERA is a mesmerizing ode to the fragility of the beautiful things in life, and a cautionary tale about how easily they can be lost.

Many of the films shown at The Ross are not rated due to the prohibitive cost of acquiring a rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. Consequently, as many of these films contain graphic content, viewer discretion is advised.


“LA CHIMERA sneaks up on you. Rohrwacher is a discreet virtuoso with a visual style that is appealing and demonstrably unshowy.”

Manohla Dargis

New York Times

“Mournful yet exuberant, LA CHIMERA is a towering work of art presented with the unassuming invitation of a warming summer morning. […] LA CHIMERA feels like the discovery of a new language. A staunch humanist, Rohrwacher makes movies that are primed for immortality. If her latest is somehow discovered 2,000 years from now among the ruins of what we once called civilization, it would be an astoundingly flattering portrait of us.”

Carlos Aguilar

Los Angeles Times

“Alice Rohrwacher’s LA CHIMERA is dreamy and fantastical.”
