The new trailer premiered today for Kim Longinotto’s Shooting The Mafia which opens in theaters on November 22 via Cohen Media Group.

Sicilian photographer Letizia Battaglia began a lifelong battle with the Mafia when she first dared to point her camera at a brutally slain victim. A woman whose passions led her to abandon traditional family life and become a photojournalist in the 1970s, Battaglia found herself on the front lines during one of the bloodiest chapters in Italy’s recent history. She fearlessly and artfully captured everyday Sicilian life – from weddings and funerals to the grisly murders of ordinary citizens – to tell the narrative of how the community she loved in her native Palermo was forced into silence by the Cosa Nostra. Weaving together Battaglia’s striking black-and-white photographs, rare archival footage, classic Italian films, and the 84-year-old’s own memories, SHOOTING THE MAFIA paints a portrait of a remarkable woman whose bravery and defiance helped expose the Mafia’s brutal crimes.
