Sicilian Letizia Battaglia began a lifelong battle with the Mafia when she first dared to
point her camera at a brutally slain victim. Exposing the Cosa Nostra's barbaric reign,
she bore unflinching witness to their crimes and has led a life continually defined by
defiance and passion.
“The most arresting documentary of the past few decades” - Little White Lies
Our inaugural programme will run from January to May 2020. The Winter/Spring selection includes award-winning films like the magical and disturbing Colombian combat epic, Monos, Pedro Almodóvar's sublime Pain and Glory and what's been described as one of the defining British films of the decade Bait. We also have the excellent Irish-produced documentary Shooting the Mafia and the critically acclaimed drug epic Birds of Passage as well as the wonderful Good Posture. Of course, with short films always at the forefront of our programming, we will be showcasing a fantastic selection of films from both Ireland and abroad.
