Friday 10th of May | 7:00 p.m. | DCF, Warszawa screening room
Opening of the festival: Screening of the film “Shooting the Mafia” by Kim Longinotto + meeting with Letizia Battaglia and Roberto Timperi
In Polish only
Letizia Battaglia is one of Italy’s preeminent photographers. Her black-and-white documentation of the violence of the Sicilian mafia served to starkly illuminate the brutality of those times and shattered the romantic image of the mafia. "Shooting the Mafia" is a multifaceted portrait of the famous Italian artist: archival footage and frank discussions are intercut with her black-and-white photos. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Battaglia and her partner Roberto Timperi, also a photographer.
