Letizia Battaglia spent her life documenting mobsters; her powerful images stripped away the glamorous image of the Sicilian Mafia and showed the harsh reality of life, death, and business in the world of crime. The compilation of her art, archival images, and old cinematic footage, paint a stark picture of the social Petri dish in Italy that allowed the Mafia to flourish in the 1970s and 80s. Captured with shocking proximity, the film profiles Battaglia’s bravery in documenting the raw power of the blood business.
