Written and directed by cult filmmaker Abel Ferrara (The Driller Killer, Bad Lieutenant, Welcome to New York), this dark, daring drama tells the story of the fateful final days of the controversial Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. Having recently finished Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, Pasolini has enraged audiences, critics and politicians with his homosexuality and the scandal that surrounds his films. Focusing on both his private and professional life, the film explores the inner-world of Pasolini in the days before his violent death. Starring Willem Dafoe (The Last Temptation of Christ) as the great auteur, and featuring Ninetto Davoli, who acted in many of his films, Pasolini is a powerful and evocative look into the dark world of one of world cinema's most controversial figures, as seen through the eyes of one of modern cinema's most astonishing and surprising directors.
