Dr John David Rhodes (author of Stupendous, Miserable City: Pasolini’s Rome) introduces the film before the screening on 11 September.
Rome. It was the night of 1 November 1975 when the great Italian poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered. His art always opposed power fearlessly; his poetry and writings scandalized, while his films were persecuted by censorship.
On the day of his death, Pasolini spent his last hours in the company of his beloved mother and close friends, and later he drove his Alfa Romeo in search of adventure in the eternal city. At dawn the following day, the body of Pasolini was found dead nearby the seadrome in Ostia.
Abel Ferrara’s film plays with a visionary blend of reality and imagination.
