Our Godfather   


Our Godfather is a feature length documentary about Tommaso Buscetta, the first high-ranking Italian Mafia boss ever to turn against Cosa Nostra.

Buscetta not only broke the code of silence for the first time - he testified against the Mob, both in the USA and in Italy.  “He was the key witness who broke the back of the Mob”, Louis Freeh (later FBI director) said at the time.

Buscetta helped convict more than 400 Mafiosi.  He became the Mob’s most wanted man in the world - and 11 close relatives, including two sons, were killed.

Our Godfather tells, for the first time, the Buscetta story with exclusive access to his family, who remain in America and are now breaking their silence after more than 30 years in hiding in America.



"With the gripping tension and fast pacing of a first-rate thriller"

"Our Godfather is a must-watch for fans of true crime” - SKONMOVIES.COM

"It's those small, resonant details that make Our Godfather more than simply a true-crime tale but also a moving portrait of a man who was both a stone-cold killer and a tragic figure who never got over his guilt for what his criminal lifestyle had done to his family"
