The Studio Italia Cinema Italiano Festival NZ warmly invites you to the film 'Shooting the Mafia'
Director: Kim Longinotto
Language: In Italian and English with English subtitles
Italian photographer, Letizia Battaglia spends her career documenting the life and crimes of the Mafia.
Letizia is a woman whose passions led her to abandon traditional family life and become a photojournalist in the 1970s-the first female photographer to be employed by an Italian daily newspaper-Battaglia found herself on the front lines during one of the bloodiest chapters in Italy’s recent history.
She fearlessly and artfully captured everyday Sicilian life-from weddings and funerals to the grisly murders of ordinary citizens, to tell the narrative of how the community she loved in her native Palermo was forced into silence by the Cosa Nostra.
