THE MAFIA ONLY KILLS IN SUMMER

DIRECTOR: PIF - ITALY

Pierfrancesco Diliberto (a renowned TV host and political comedian), better known as Pif, wrote, directed, and stars in this subversive, irreverent feature debut about Arturo, a young boy whose obsession with the Mafia’s casual presence in his city surpasses even his passion for Flora, the beautiful schoolmate who remains his main love interest until adulthood. Pif uses Arturo’s unrequited love story as the vehicle to narrate the most tragic events in Italy’s recent history, starting with the Cosa Nostra’s criminal actions in Sicily in the ’70s, which soon spread through the country. A brave and intelligent dark comedy with a powerful message, Italian Senate President Pietro Grasso referred to the film as the best one the Mafia ever made.
