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 expos├ęs 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.
