Leeds Film Presents: The Traitor
17 Dec 2020 - 31 Jan 2021
partnering with two of our favourite independent UK distributors, Modern Films & Day for Night, for a series of new selections.
The Traitor is a gripping, real life mafia drama based on the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, the first Sicilian mobster to turn informer. Veteran Italian director Marco Bellocchio builds the drama around a series of extraordinary courtroom scenes, closely based on actual footage with baying, caged mobsters ridiculing turncoat Buscetta’s testimony from the back of the hall (see Shooting the Mafia). Flashbacks reveal the backstory of mafia wars over heroin turf in the early 80s as scores are settled and Buscetta’s family is targeted. The trial marks the beginning of the end of the Cosa Nostra’s reign of terror.
