HOMAGE | PASOLINI DAY

On the fortieth anniversary of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s, which falls on November 2, a group of fans wanted to celebrate his work, in an act of passion that has the intent to discover, inside the eclecticism of his work, especially the director and poet, besides he’s also known activity as a writer, journalist, publicist, critic; brilliant narrator of a country in the unstoppable race of his transformation.
The initiative was launched in May, within the broader framework of the Tirana International Film Festival and the first edition of DocuTIFF. On that occasion, a first public meeting and discussion was held at the Black Box Theater on various aspects of his work.
That first meeting opened the way to a public reading of some of Pasolini’s poems, translated in Albanian and yet unplub-lished, to be held on November 2, at the Tulla Cultural Center.

 

In the same day three films will also be screened:

 

1. La Rabbia (The Anger) by Pier Paolo Pasolini |

Documentary | Italy | 1963 | 78

 

2. Uccellacci e Uccellini (The Hawks and the Sparrows)

by Pier Paolo Pasolini | Comedy, Drama | Italy | 1966 | 91‘

Nominated Palme d’Or Cannes Film Festival 1966

 

3. Il Decamerone (The Decameron) by Pier Paolo Pasolini |

Comedy, Drama, History | Italy, France, Germany

|1971 | 112 ‘

Won Silver Bear, Berlin International Film Festival 1971

 

A later phase of the project involves the publication in Alba-nian of a collection of Pasolini’s poems, Carne e Cielo, recently published in Italy, and scheduled for March 5, 2016, this time to coincide with the anniversary of the birth of the poet.

Pier Paolo PASOLINI

“La Rabbia” employs documentary footage and accompanying commentary to attempt to answer the existential question, Why are our lives character-ized by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts, and the directors of these respective sections, leſt-wing

P. P. Pasolini and conservative G. Guareschi, offer the viewer contrasting analyses of and prescriptions for modern society. Part I, by Pasolini, is a denunciation of the offenses of Western culture, particularly those against colonized Africa. It is at the same time a chronicle of the liberation

and independence of the former African colonies, portraying these peoples as the new protagonists of the world stage, holding up Marxism as their “salvation,” and suggesting that their “innocent ferocity” will be the new religion of the era.
