“OUR GODFATHER” World premiere HOT DOCS 28 April

“Once a Mafioso, always a Mafioso. When you are initiated, it is forever.” Following the cold-blooded murder of 11 family members—including his own son—Tommaso Buscetta, otherwise known as Don Masino, turned state’s evidence.

His testimony led to the conviction of over 400 Mafiosi in Italy and the United States, and he became the first Mafia boss to ever turn his back on Cosa Nostra. With this unprecedented move, Buscetta instantly became the most important and endangered witness in US criminal history.

In witness protection, he’s reduced to a narrow domestic life of birthdays and backyard barbecues, a life that for Buscetta is without action or purpose.

Breaking silence after 30 years, Our Godfather combines never-before-seen home videos, emotional interviews from Buscetta’s wife and surviving children, and sensational courtroom footage that delivers an insider’s view into the heinous and unforgiving world of organized crime.
