Shooting the Mafia

Directed by Kim Longinotto
  • Ireland
  • 1hr 34min
  • 2019
  • Italian with English Subtitles

Kim Longinotto’s powerful documentary strips back the glamorous image of the Sicilian Mafia, showing the harsh reality of life, death and business at the hands of those who wield it. It does so through the eyes and lens of photographer Letizia Battaglia, who captured their brutality on her own terms. Fear and threats did not prevent her from documenting what has been described as her “archive of blood” in all of its raw power. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Kim Longinotto, producer Niamh Fagan, archive producer Clare Stronge and executive producer Lesley McKimm.

Prepare to fall in love with the force of nature that is Letizia Battaglia in Kim Loginotto's superb new Irish documentary.
