SHOOTING THE MAFIA
A breathtaking and loving documentary on Letizia Battaglia’s life as a photographer
I was lucky to meet her in New York, more than nine years ago at the Gala of the International Center of Photography, 2009. She was given the Cornell Capa Infinity Award, together with other awardees: Aveek Sen, Liego Shiga, Gert van Kesteren and Annie Leibowitz among others. The guests were ecstatic. And Letizia Battaglia was simply a woman full of joy and energy. She still is. The documentary by Longinotto is just flawless, miraculously beautiful. I have no other words to describe it. Not to be missed.
