The Hundred Steps | 2000
Cinisi, a Sicilian village like many others, is an important crossroads for drug trafficking. A hundred steps separate Peppino Impastato's house from that of Mafia boss Tano Badalamenti. Peppino refuses to walk those hundred steps. His adolescence reaches its apex in '68 when the world's youth contradicted their fathers' values and certainties. Peppino also rebels against authority and in Sicily this means challenging the Mafia. The atmosphere becomes intense. Peppino stands in the council elections, aiming to bring his battle to the Town Hall. Two days before the elections he is killed. It is an anonymous killing. Twenty years later the Palermo Public Prosecutor's Office committed Badalamenti for trial for ordering the assassination. The trial has not yet taken place.
