Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Giuseppe Fava and Vittorio Sindoni created a series of fictionalized television programs in Sicily that include scenes of poverty, deprivation, and unemployment as well as exposés of the Mafia's activities on the island. Sindoni culled excerpts from these programs to create this one-hour film. Fava plays the part of a reporter who interviews people from all walks of life, an apt role for him since he was a journalist (who focused on exposing the Mafia, in fact). Fava was murdered in 1984, making this docudrama a tribute to his heroism and an important film for viewers who care about those who fight pollution, in any form.
