    • Synopsis
    • A biopic about the Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia known for her intrepid recording of the devastation caused by the mafia in her native Sicily. The feature documentary 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.
