Friday, February 13 - Thursday, May 14, 2009

Ends Thursday! From the street drug trade and illegal arms trafficking to high-fashion knockoffs and toxic waste carting–the action is everywhere in this kaleidoscopic look at contemporary Naples, and everyone wants a piece of it. Adapting Roberto Saviano’s incendiary bestselling expose of the Camorra underworld empire, Garrone follows five separate tales of ordinary people in an extraordinarily dysfunctional place. The disparate stories of ambition, compromise, betrayal and deadly retribution coalesce into a scathing portrait of a society steeped in crime and corruption. Presented by Martin Scorsese.
