Pier Paolo Pasolini

Occupation: Film director, writer, poet, philosopher, linguist, novelist, columnist, artist

Pasolini is not known only as a film maker. A prominent poet, writer and thinker who made his first feature film at the age of 40, he had previously written or co-written dialogue for several films, among them Fellini’s “Cabirian Nights” and Bertolucci’s “La Commare Secca”.

His directorial debut is the beautifully shot and simply directed “Accattone” that tells the story of a young man trying to make some kind of living among the low-lifes of Rome. Based on Pasolini’s own novel, the film is characterised by mesmerising black and white photography and beautiful images inspired by various Renaissance paintings. With this work and subsequent works he immediately attracted the attention of the Church and the State. His third project “La Ricotta”, a medium-length film about a film-crew filming “Christ’s Crucifixion” was banned, and Pasolini was tried because of it.
His outspokenness and unconventional beliefs were always guaranteed to cause a reaction of some kind. However, he persisted in his own strong and recognisable style and some real masterpieces of cinematography followed: “The Passion According to St Matthew”, filmed in the beautiful landscapes of the Middle East, ”Uccellacci e Uccellini”, a comedy with Toto set in 60’s Italy, when Marxism and the Church were binary opposites, and his films based on Greek mythology – “Oedipus Rex” and “Medea”.
Towards the end of his fruitful career in cinema, he completed his unofficial trilogy based on the Arabian Nights, The Decameron of Boccaccio and the Canterbury Tales by Chaucer. His last film before being brutally murdered in mysterious circumstances – a crime which remains unsolved to this day - was based on de Sade’s “Salo” and he portrays the brutality and masochism of the upper classes and the aristocracy. Dismissed by many as a completely awful and unwatchable film, it is nevertheless worth seeing.
