Love Meetings (Pasolini, 1964): BFI Southbank, NFT3 8.30pm
This film, which is screening as part of the Pier Paolo Pasolini season at the BFI Southbank, is also being shown on March 10 and March 14. Details here.
Here is the BFI introduction to the film: Comizi d’amore is Pasolini’s ciné-vérité investigation of Italian
attitudes to sex and sexuality in 1964. Spot-sampling different areas of
the country, Pasolini himself appears as an interviewer, asking
subjects to discuss their freedoms, repressions and prejudices. Plus
Pasolini’s surrealist contribution to the Silvana Mangano omnibus The
Witches: The Earth Seen from the Moon (1966, 33min) reunites the stars
of Hawks and Sparrows in a joyful fable.
Here is a fascinating extract.
