The FleaPit Doc Night
Screening of Battaglia

8pm

The FleaPit Doc Night celebrates London's East End Photography month with a screening of Battaglia by award winning documentary film maker Daniela Zanzotto. 58 mins.

Battaglia takes us on a journey through the life of the extraordinary Sicilian photographer and anti-Mafia activist Letizia Battaglia. A story of passion, pain and the struggle for freedom.

At 37 Letizia, together with her 3 daughters, left a husband whom she had been married to since the age of 16 and became a journalist. She picked up a camera when she found that she could better sell her articles if they were accompanied by photographs. After years of racing on her vespa to the crime scenes with her camera, Letizia found she had accumulated an archive of death and decay of Palermo and its citizens. But simply documenting what was happening wasn't enough for her and so she became and anti-Mafia activist and environmental politician and dedicated her life to the battle for justice.

The director will be present for an informal q&a; after the screening.

Tickets 5 in advance available from www.wegottickets.com
