Pier Paolo Pasolini
Pier Paolo Pasolini deconstructs his twin interests—Catholicism and Marxism—in this subversive, fable-like comedy. Italian-cinema icon Totò (in his final starring role) and Pasolini muse Ninetto Davoli star as a father and his slow-witted son, who go out walking and come across a talking, philosophical crow who launches them on a time-traveling adventure that takes them back 750 years in history to the time of St. Francis.
A celebration of revolutionary filmmaking.
Taking Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando: A Biography as its starting point, academic virtuoso turned filmmaker Paul B. Preciado has fashioned the documentary, Orlando: My Political Biography, as a personal essay, historical analysis, and social manifesto which premiered and took home four prizes at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival.
