Part of: Storyhouse Women

Directed by: Kim Longinotto 

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. 

Join Birds’ Eye View director-at-large and Oscar-winning producer Mia Bays for a post-screening discussion where she will be joined by Marco Paoli, lecturer in Italian and Film Studies at the University of Liverpool, & Storyhouse’s own Elisa Ippolito.

This screening is presented by Reclaim The Frame. A mission to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women to widen and enrich cinema’s perspective of the world, run by charity Birds’ Eye View, and backed by the British Film Institute’s Audience Fund.
