SHOOTING THE MAFIA, directed by Kim Longinotto, wins the Jury Award and Audience Award at Spain’s Memorimage – Reus International Film Festival.
SHOOTING THE MAFIA took home two prizes at the 14th edition of Memorimage – Reus International Film Festival, which took place from the 6th to 9th November in Tarragona, Spain. The Jury recognised the film for its “immersive” and “emotionally intense” story, as well as its skilful use of archive.
A biopic about the Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia, SHOOTING THE MAFIA weaves together Battaglia’s striking black-and-white photographs, classic Italian movies, rare archival film, and the now 84-year-old’s own memories, to paint a portrait of a remarkable woman whose bravery and defiance helped expose the Cosa Nostra’s brutal crimes in her native Sicily.
