Excellent Cadavers

Based on the book by author Alexander Stille, this acclaimed documentary tells the remarkable story of the powerful Sicilian Mafia and the two prosecutors, Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone, who brought charges against hundreds of its members from the 1980s - until they were brutally killed in 1992. Tracing the history of the Mafia's powerful grip on Italy, Marco Turco's film draws on court testimony and blood-curdling crime scene photographs by Letizia Battaglia to paint an urgent, gripping portrait of crime and corruption.
