Life in the Shadow of the Mafia

Leben im Schatten der Mafia

The time of the great godfathers is over; today the Mafia is more discreet, efficient, and professional than in the days of Mario Puzo (1920-1999, author of The Godfather). The conspirative organization covers Italian society like a net. The more profitable a business activity, the more likely it is to be involved. This documentary shines a light on the 'Ndrangheta, the most powerful, dangerous, and mysterious Italian Mafia organization. Its estimated annual revenue: 53 billion euros. At that, the director made a scoop: She won over a so-called «pentita», a principal witness for an exclusive interview. This witness breaks the ironclad commandment of «omerta», the Mafia code of silence.
