PASOLINI WHAT HAS TO BE SAID
”I´m a man from another era”, says Pier Paolo Pasolini in an interview at end of his life. Not all true, but his statement translates his unease and criticism of Western society, more specifically Italian sociaty around 1970.
Pasolini, a man of great complexity, with broad interests and skills, moved from one creative expression to another. Poetry, politics, film making and philosophy, in all areas he choosed for the adequate mean of expression of his visions. Some of his films are among the most discussed, most appreciated and most critizized pieces ever made.
Pasolini had to talk and he talks in natural lyrics, playful erotic and even dark sado-masochistic violence. His work, whatever form choosen, expresses love for the simplicity of the uneducated and traditional peasants and workers, people living their own culture in local regions of Italy. It´s a world breathing Catholic faith and mythology, directness, joy, violence and eroticism. Pasolini gives witness to this popular world being destroyed by the rise of technocratic society, the consumism and the modern media world.
During our Film Days we present three very different pieces. The Gospel according to Matthew, Teorema and Mamma Roma takes place in different times and surroundings. In common they have the intense engagement and longing for life in contrast to conformism and destructive power.

The modern world and times brough many changes. Post-war optimism sparked a rapid cultural change on all levels of society. Taboos were broken and norms redefined. A desire for freedom was becoming strong, returning liberalism, sexual liberation, hippie-movements are just a few examples of this. Freedom is a precious thing. But freedom without any goal or direction? And freedom for others but me?
