Alice Rohrwacher is the director of La chimera. She is an Italian film director with Cannes and Venice Awards and an Oscar nomination. She is known for The Wonders, Happy as Lazzaro, Corpo Celeste, and Le pupille.

The movie is a quirky, fantasy comedy about a young British archeologist, played by Josh O’Connor, who gets involved in an international black market network of stolen ancient Etruscan artifacts. The movie is set in Riparbella in Tuscany, Italy in the 1980s. He teams up with a bizarre homeless gang of grave robbers. They sell the artifacts to a shady dealer. The rest is delightful chaos.
