Ex Convento Santa Chiara, Brindisi

Docu-film by the Brindisi-born director Benito Ravone produced by Passo Uno.
An investigation into the history of smuggling in Brindisi through exclusive images and testimonies of the protagonists; between murders, international trafficking, the birth of the Sacra Corona Unita and Operation Primavera.
The director, with great care and passion, reveals the twisted mechanisms of Salento's organized crime by personally encountering those "seeds of evil" planted over thirty years ago that still continue to germinate and infest the territory. Petty bosses, cruel "soldiers", deviant police forces, innocent victims, brave magistrates and statesmen, in an epic tale that does not give up on moments of poetry. Unmissable.
