    • Synopsis
    • Our Godfather is a feature length documentary about Tommaso Buscetta, the first high-ranking Italian Mafia boss ever to turn against Cosa Nostra.

      Buscetta not only broke the code of silence for the first time - he testified against the Mob, both in the USA and in Italy. “He was the key witness who broke the back of the Mob”, Louis Freeh (later FBI director) said at the time.

      Buscetta helped convict more than 400 Mafiosi. He became the Mob’s most wanted man in the world - and 11 close relatives, including two sons, were killed.

      Our Godfather tells, for the first time, the Buscetta story with exclusive access to his family, who remain in America and are now breaking their silence after more than 30 years in hiding in America.
