Director: Francesco Rosi
Cast: Salvo Randone, Frank Wolff, Sennuccio Benelli, Giuseppe Calandra, Pietro Cammarata, Max Cartier
Italy, 1962, 107’, black & white, Italian with Turkish subtitles 

This crime and mafia film brought Francesco Rosi international fame and was the first example of his unique mosaic style. Based on the life story of Salvatore Giuliano, a Sicilian bandit and folk hero who played a key role in Sicily’s guerilla war for independence after the war and later turned into a mafia leader, the film begins with Giuliano’s murder in 1950 and narrates with flashbacks how he became a bandit, attacking communists and fighting security forces. Eventually, Giuliani becomes so cruel that even his own men desert him.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
