Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 62: Sun Mar 3

Love Meetings (Pasolini, 1964): BFI Southbank, NFT3 8.30pm
This film, which is screening as part of the Pier Paolo Pasolini season at the BFI Southbank, is also being shown on March 10 and March 14. Details here.

Here is the BFI introduction to the film: Comizi d’amore is Pasolini’s ciné-vérité investigation of Italian attitudes to sex and sexuality in 1964. Spot-sampling different areas of the country, Pasolini himself appears as an interviewer, asking subjects to discuss their freedoms, repressions and prejudices. Plus Pasolini’s surrealist contribution to the Silvana Mangano omnibus The Witches: The Earth Seen from the Moon (1966, 33min) reunites the stars of Hawks and Sparrows in a joyful fable.

Here is a fascinating extract.
