Partenope: Finding A Lost City - A new documentary by director Jon Dunham

Italian style, food and culture are admired around the world. What is lesser known however is that much of what the world knows and admires about Italy comes from its arguably most colorful, complicated and least understood city - Napoli. “O Sole Mio”, cinema icon Sophia Loren and some of Italy’s most delicious cuisine, including pizza, all hail from this most unique southern metropolis.

Over the course of a year immersed in present day neopolitan life and following various individuals who’s stories will guide us through Napoli’s culture and mysterious, ancient past, the film will capture a dynamic picture of this most fascinating city.

Partenope: Finding A Lost City will be shot in ultra high definition 4K vividly capturing Napoli in all of its rugged richness. This is a very personal subject to me as running brought me to Italy and I have spent the better part of the last three years living in and exploring Napoli. If you have an interest in Italy, travel or have enjoyed one of my previous films, I invite you to join me on this production and support independent filmmaking with your donation. Every bit helps!

Thank you for your support.
