SHOOTING THE MAFIA

A breathtaking and loving documentary on Letizia Battaglia’s life as a photographer

IMG_5559

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.

THE HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, by Thomas Ostermeier

img_5526.jpg

     In the history of violence -that nobody has yet written with a sense of totality and global justice-, let us at least proceed step by step. On this occasion, Thomas Ostermeier has staged in Brooklyn the eponymous autobiographical novel by Edouard Louis, which basically concerns homosexuals: ethnically discriminated or not, immigrants and native, proletarians or dispossessed and nerds who signal themselves by feeling, and by reading too much for what it is expected from them. Persecuted, attacked, bullied, fallen ill, jailed or killed. Yes. But the first lesson? Violence is never a unilateral or a bilateral question; there are always more sides to it. And those other sides can be your own kin, homosexuals or not, your partner, your friends, your colleagues; or be within yourself, or be just a part of yourself or be simply right at the heart of your love. An excellent and talented rendition of Louis’ novel in German language by Ostermeier. Two hours that fly. A pleasure to see, despite the harrowing pain.
