The Traitor tells the true story of Tommaso Buscetta, the man who brought down the Cosa Nostra. In the early 1980s, an all-out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses over the heroin trade. Tommaso Buscetta, a “made man,” flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home, scores are being settled and Buscetta watches from afar as his sons and brother are killed in Palermo, knowing he may be next. Arrested and extradited to Italy by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything for the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Giovanni Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.
In Italian with English subtitles, and partially in Sicilian, Portuguese, English. Available only in the US.

COVID HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
We are excited and eager to get back to in-person events and screenings with you. In order to keep our patrons, staff, and volunteers safe, San Diego Italian Film Festival’s current health and safety requirements are as follows:
We are a fully vaccinated organization. All staff and volunteers present at our screenings and events are fully vaccinated. In order to enter the theater or any venue hosting our events, guests need to have photo ID and either their physical CDC vaccination card or an official government-provided digital vaccine record, with at least 14 days elapsed from the date of final dose. Trained individuals will review your proof of vaccination as you arrive.
Children under the age of 12, for whom there is no currently available vaccine, will not be permitted to attend our events regardless of the vaccination status of their guardian. As soon as children under the age of 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, fully vaccinated children will be welcomed back.
There will be no exceptions to this policy.
Face masks: Face masks may be required depending on the CDC guidelines at the time of the screening or event. Guests are strongly encouraged to wear an approved mask as much as possible while indoors.
