“…a cinematic biography of the highest order.” – TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL

 

In 1975, controversial Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (ACCATONE,THE DECAMERON, SALO) was brutally murdered by Pino the Frog, a seventeen year-old male prostitute who claimed self-defense. Pasolini, an avowed Marxist and open homosexual as well as an outspoken critic of Italy’s consumer culture and rampant political corruption, was admired by artists and intellectuals but reviled by conservative authorities. Documentary filmmaker Philo Bregstein probes the mysterious circumstances surrounding Pasolini’s death to suggest a possible cover-up or conspiracy by right-wing groups. Interviews with Pasolini’s peers and associates, including director Bernardo Bertolucci, actress Laura Betti, and writer Alberto Moravia, put the controversial filmmaker’s life and career into perspective, along with photos, readings of his poetry, and clips from these films.
