Screened August 25–28, 2018

Contract killer Henry Silva is called back from Brooklyn to his roots in Italy to quell internecine tensions among the Mafia families of Mario Landi, Vittorio Sanipoli, and Fausto Tozzi; the latter’s ex-hooker wife Barbara Bouchet openly crushes on the hit man. Blood is just one of the fluids that gets spattered about in this unhinged pastoral round-robin of brutality.
