One Hundred Steps
Directed by Marco Tullio Giordana
The movie is the story of Peppino Impastato, a young left-wing activist who in the late seventies (when almost nobody dared to speak about the Mafia, and several politicians maintained that the Mafia did not even exist) repeatedly denounced Badalamenti’s criminal activities and the whole Mafia system, by using a small local radio station to broadcast his political pronouncements in the form of ironic humour.
In 1978 Peppino (30 years old) was killed by an explosion. The police archived the case as an accident or a suicide, but his friends never accepted this conclusion.
