Shooting the Mafia

Dir: Kim Longinotto
Ireland / United States / 2019 / 97mins

Bearing witness to the barbaric reign of the Sicilian mafia, Letizia Battaglia's black-and-white photography captures decades of violence on the streets of her home town, Palermo. Kim Longinotto traces Battaglia's journey from marriage aged 16 to a new career at 40 as the first Italian woman to be a photographer for a daily newspaper, defiantly pointing her camera at the devastation wrought by the Cosa Nostra.

With a wealth of archive material - from classic Italian cinema to nail-biting contemporary reportage - Shooting the Mafia is a portrait of a fearless journalist, a passionate activist and a courageous woman who has broken free of convention and expectation in every area of her life.

The screening on Tue 10 Dec will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by Birds Eye View as part of their Reclaim The Frame series. Lucia Rinaldi, expert in the Italian Crime Narrative in Cinema will be joining Kate Muir, writer and film critic, campaigner for women in film with Time Up UK.
