Filmfest 2015

Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975) was a multi-hyphenate of the first order: poet, journalist, playwright, novelist, actor, painter and outspoken Marxist. But he gained his greatest international renown as a director of films that challenged social mores and censorship laws. Abel Ferrera, a less-hyphenated but just-as-challenging filmmaker, has conjured a new film that is a meditation on the life and art of Pasolini -- his political views and hatred of government corruption and consumerism, his spirituality, and his homosexuality.
