Another Corleone: Another Sicily--Screening of Documentary by Professor Anthony Fragola on Thursday, April 21

Professor Anthony Fragola, Media Studies, will lead a discussion at the premiere of his film, Another Corleone: Another Sicily, at the Weatherspoon Museum on Thursday, April 21 at 6:00 pm (the screening starts at 6:30 pm). The event, part of the UNCG Sustainability Film and Dialogue Series, is free and open to the public.

Another Corleone: Another Sicily focuses on the lands confiscated from the Mafia in Corleone, the town made famous, or infamous, by Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather. Fragola shows the realities of the heroic struggles of the Sicilian people to reclaim their land and dignity from the bloody Mafia chiefs of Corleone who waged a war of terror against the Italian state. Another Corleone: Another Sicily illustrates the progress of these cooperatives to form self-sustaining ventures that provide meaningful work and economic freedom from Mafia control by prodicing organically grown products.
