“★★★★ – An affectionate portrait of a remarkable woman” – Empire
Award-winning filmmaker Kim Longinotto (Divorce Iranian Style, Dreamcatcher) turns her camera on a fellow female documentarian in this meticulously mounted portrait of Italian photo-journalist Letizia Battaglia.
Shooting the Mafia weaves together Letizia 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 bravery and defiance helped expose the Mafia’s brutal crimes.
