"The Mafia Kills Only In The Summer" on  +Empire Magazine  reviewed by David Parkinson http://goo.gl/cLQsK5

The online section of the prestigious “Empire Magazine” writes a review about the film by Pierfrancesco Diliberto “The Mafia Kills Only In The Summer”. 

The journalist David Parkinson writes: “what most impresses is the way in which he (Pierfrancesco Diliberto) and co-scenarists Michele Astori and Marco Martani switch so deftly between tragedy and comedy, innocence and infamy without once seeming to trivialise the murderous madness that was everyday reality for a population cowed into silence”.

Don’t miss the UK Premiere of “The Voice Of Peppino Impastato” by Ivan Vadori, on July 24 at Riverside Studios. Book now

"Peppino’s story is a journey through Italy by unprecedented interviews with the main witnesses who directly or indirectly knew the journalist cruelly killed 36 years ago, on May 9th 1978.

The interviewees tell the story of Peppino Impastato and share their knowledge about the investigations on his murder and Mafia’s mechanisms. Among them, the journalist of ‘La Repubblica’ (one of the main Italian newspapers), Salvo Palazzolo, the prosecutor Gian Carlo Caselli - pictured - the sociologist Nando Dalla Chiesa, the journalist of ‘Il Fatto Quotidiano’ newspaper Antonella Mascali, the president of ‘Radio 100 Passi’ Danilo Sulis, Peppino’s Brother Giovanni Impastato, the president of the Anti-Mafia organization ‘Libera’ Don Ciotti, the prosecutor Franca Imbergamo, to the writer Carlo Lucarelli and the co-author of ‘Radio Aut’ Salvo Vitale”.

Have a look at the trailer! http://goo.gl/UKz4an
It opens today in NYC at Lincoln Plaza Cinema.
It “is an exquisite miniature that doesn’t try to tell a story; it’s a meditation on the transformative possibilities of a relationship between troubled half siblings, 11 years apart, who barely know each other" (Stephen Holden, The New York Times)

"How is it possible that in Palermo the Mafia was so forcefully present in people’s lives and so few spoke out against it?" 
Read the director's note by Pierfrancesco Diliberto and book today your seat for the screening of "The Mafia Kills Only In The Summer" at Riverside Studios on July 24! http://goo.gl/TkxRIt

“You know that feeling of when you come across an old photo from the 1980s of the girl that had made you fall head over heels? No matter how beautiful the girl, your eyes, or mine at least, will be attracted by a peculiar element: the shoulder pads. Girls wore horrible shoulder pads, because they were fashionable. And you will ask yourselves: how come shoulder pads were part of my life and I never said anything?
So, I asked myself a similar question with regards to Palermo, the city where I was born and grew-up. One day I stopped and I looked back. And that’s when the question came to me: how is it possible that in Palermo the Mafia was so forcefully present in people’s lives and so few spoke out against it?
Time makes you more clear headed, more detached and you then understand the absurd compromises you make during your life, aware to a greater or lesser extent, in order to carry on. And in the end you pretend that everything is fine. Including accepting shoulder pads. Because it’s tiring to stand out from the crowd. Because, however bitter this may be, there and then your life is easier if you put your head down, and time will tell.
So, it’s sometimes better to be a child. Because you imitate your role models, adults.
And if they don’t have any problems, neither do you. Problems start coming when, one day, that child realizes that the Mafia doesn’t kill only in summer“. Pif
