13 September, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Based on true events, Black Souls (2013) is a gripping story of a Calabrian mafia dynasty and one man’s chilling struggle to break free of a chequered past. Luciano (Fabrizio Ferracane), the eldest of the Carbone brothers, turns his back on his family’s drug operations and seeks to take his 20 year old son Leo (Guiseppe Fumo) back to his ancestral home. Leo however maintains his familial connections which ultimately leads to a feud that threatens to explode. The film confronts the age-old morality tale about challenging the cycle of violence and crime that plagues Calabrian mafia culture. Winner of 9 Italian Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay, this is a gripping thriller akin to Matteo Garrone’s 2008 film Gomorrah. Palace Films.
