A superior Italian gangster movie from director Francesco Munzi. The Carbone family consists of three brothers – Luigi and Rocco, who are engaged in the family business of international drug trade, and Luciano, who has remained in his ancestral town of Africo in the Aspromonte mountains herding goats. His 20-year old son Leo has little respect for his farmer father, but idealizes his Mafioso uncles. When Leo shoots up a bar owned by a rival family with a longstanding blood feud with the Carbones, his reckless actions create trouble that brings the whole family back to Africo for the inevitable bloody showdown.

Screening Date: 5-Jun-16
