Online Event

Dates and times

17 Dec 2020 - 31 Jan 2021

Online Event

partnering with two of our favourite independent UK distributors, Modern Films & Day for Night, for a series of new selections

Trailblazing documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto turns her lens on the gutsy and resourceful photojournalist Letizia Battaglia, an extraordinary Sicilian artist and activist whose work defines community resistance to the Mafia. Battaglia found her calling relatively late in life, breaking tradition by turning away from a domestic role as a wife and mother, she captured the horrors of everyday life in Sicily in the eighties as resistance to the rule of the brutal Corleonesi family led to a series of grizzly murders, forcing a stricken community into silence. Also, don’t miss The Traitor for a stunning dramatisation of some of the events portrayed.
