Presented in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s birth, Willem Dafoe is the iconic Italian poet and film director. The film chronicles his final hours on November 2, 1975, following him as he works on his controversial classic, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom and leads up to his brutal murder on the beach in Ostia on the outskirts of the city. Facing resistance and persecution from the public, politicians, censors, and critics, Pasolini visits with his beloved mother and friends, including actress Laura Betti, and continues his work on an ambitious new novel and screenplay—all the while cruising in his Alfa Romeo for adventure and connections with beautiful young men in the dark streets of Rome. [84 mins; drama; English, Italian, and French with English subtitles] A Q&A with special guests (to be announced) will follow the screening.
