Theater screening

Online Screening


Pasolini, who left a clear mark on world cinematic history, was a Bologinian native. This film tracks the director's ties to the city.

A documentary film where a student, preparing to write a paper on Pasolini and Bologna, traces the famous director’s footprints in the City of Culture that nurtured him in his youth. As we watch, not only Bologna’s cultural climate where passion for various cultures and curiosity for all kinds of artistic ideology is encouraged but also the nature of the city which encompasses contradictions – conservatism and avant-garde, moderateness and extremism, Catholicism and epicureanism – slowly overlaps with Pasolini’s style. A film depicting Pasolini’s emotional, intuitive, and reflective ties with the city until his death.
