Actor-Writer-Director Pif on his Feature Film Debut THE MAFIA ONLY KILLS IN SUMMER

THE MAFIA ONLY KILLS IN SUMMER is a subversive, irreverent Italian film about Arturo, a young boy whose obsession with the Mafia’s casual presence in his city surpasses even his passion for Flora, the beautiful schoolmate who remains his main love interest until adulthood.
