Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur


Italy | 1961 | Pier Paolo Pasolini


Pasolini’s sympathy for Italy’s underclass and his preference for non-professional actors can be seen in this, his first film. Set in a squalid section of Rome, the movie focuses on an impoverished young ne’er-do-well (“accattone” or “scrounger’) who scrapes together a paltry living as a pimp and petty thief. Film debut of Franco Citti (The Godfather).

120 min. Subtitles. Imported New 35mm Print!
