Shooting The Mafia, Kim Longinotto’s gutsy unflinching eye on crime is presented by Bird’s Eye View and Reclaim The Frame for a screening in association with the Italian Cultural Association Exeter at the Exeter Phoenix.
The event includes an exclusive pre-recorded introduction from Kim Longinotto. After the screening Birds’ Eye View’s Mia Bays will be joined by Dr Ashley Frayling, lecturer in Criminology at the University of Exeter, and award-winning photojournalist Martin Nangle for a post-screening discussion.
Streets of Sicily
In the streets of Sicily, Letizia Battaglia pointed her camera straight into the heart of the Mafia that surrounded her and began to shoot.
Life and crimes
Italian photographer Letizia has spent years documenting the life and crimes of the Mafia. This fascinating documentary combines present day interviews with her with archive footage and her own photography to paint a vivid portrait of her life and experiences.
Grit, texture and perspective
This audacious work brings grit, texture, and critical new perspective to Letizia’s work and dismantles the romantic narrative of the Sicilian Mafia from the perspective of someone who lived inside it.
