“The Best Movies of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival” Wrap
"Wonderful film. An intimate portrait of Letizia Battaglia, an exceptional woman, whose photography of the chaos sown by the Mafia helped bring change to Sicily.”
Los Angeles Times
“A compelling and moving documentary ”
"Longinotto’s tribute to Battaglia is engaging and inspiring"
“Some of the most arresting documentary work of the past few decades.”
Little White Lies
"A lavish in-depth love letter to Italian photographer and activist Letizia Battaglia... She is always
charming and inspirational, living as a strong, independent woman in a crushing patriarchy."
"Shooting the Mafiashows that one’s bravery–even if they’re
only doing their job–can make a difference."

Shooting the Mafia
IN CINEMAS ACROSS THE UK & IRELAND 29 NOV
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 whose bravery and defiance helped expose the Mafia’s brutal crimes.
