DIRECTOR: Marco Amenta - ITALY

Recounting a major turning point in Sicily’s war against organized crime, The Sicilian Girl is an eloquent, gripping crime drama, inspired by the true story of a young girl who broke ranks to testify against the Mafia. On a November morning in 1991, 17-year-old Rita Atria (Veronica D’Agostino) approached the chief prosecutor of Palermo (Gerard Jugnot), intent on vindicating her father and brother’s mafia-related deaths, and ready to tell all. It was the first time that a daughter of a mafia family openly rebelled against the traditionally male-dominated organization. Repudiated and threatened by her boyfriend, her hometown, and even her mother (Lucia Sardo), Rita is forced to leave Sicily and move to Rome—but she knows that her betrayal must be avenged.

Filmography: One Girl Against the Mafia (04).

Cultural Partner: Italian Cultural Institute, San Francisco.
