Doc Club: Shooting the Mafia

Doc Club: Shooting the Mafia

In the streets of Sicily beautiful, gutsy Letizia Battaglia pointed her camera straight into the heart of the Mafia that surrounded her and began to shoot.

The striking, life-threatening photos she took documenting the rule of the Cosa Nostra define her career.

Shooting the Mafia weaves together Battaglia’s striking black-and-white photographs, rare archival footage, classic Italian films and the now 84-year-old’s own memories to paint a portrait of a remarkable woman whose bravery and defiance helped expose the Mafia’s brutal crimes.

A skype Q&A will follow the screening hosted by Violet Pictures.
