“I believe in Pasolini, the filmmaker almighty” – John Waters

Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini was a revolutionary filmmaker in every sense. His cinema, shaped by his formative years in fascist Italy, is both violently polemical and beautifully poetic. His rejection of conventional morality cemented his legacy as one of the most controversial filmmakers of all time.

To celebrate the centenary of Pasolini’s birth, we’re proud to present nine masterworks from this peerless provocateur. Screening every Sunday from October 16 to December 11, from acclaimed neorealist crime drama Accattone (1961) to perhaps the most controversial film of all time, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975), with each session introduced by a special guest critic, academic or filmmaker.

Proudly presented in association with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura SydneyCinema RebornCineteca Bologna and Fare Cinema 2022.
