Abel Ferrara pays homage to another visionary, the poet and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. Willem Dafoe is outstanding as Pasolini, whom we see in his last weeks of life as he prepares for the release of his final film SALO; OR THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM, and begins work on his next —alas, never to be made —film.

This screens in conjunction with Pasolini’s THE DECAMERON, playing in 35mm Aug. 16 – 18.
