THE SHADOW OF THE GODFATHER – Research for afilm

Di Giuseppe Schillaci (Italia/Francia 2015, 52 min)

The mafia, for someone sho is born in Sicily, is a shadow, something that stays with you since you’re born, but you don’t have a clear idea of what it is.   The film is an intimate research around this shadow, form the personal story of the author, to analyse the stereotypes that identified the « Mafiosity » with the sicilian culture tout court. Looking for the origins of Cosa Nostra, we find the responsabilities of a corrupted economical and political system and we see many mythes of the mafia, from cinema to american emigration, from popular to religious beliefs, that addes confusion and ambiguity around it.
