Accattone 
The Anger of Pasolini

(Pier Paolo Pasolini 1961, 1963)

Thu, Jan 23, 2014 7 PM

Depicting a milieu typical of his novels, Pasolini’s first film as a director, Accattone, follows a pimp struggling to survive while searching for a new girl after his main prostitute is sent to prison. (110 mins., 35mm) With narration in verse written by Pasolini, The Anger of Pasolini is an ideological essay on then-recent events compiled from newsreels and documentaries. As Pasolini himself noted, the film “stands as an act of protest against the unreality of the bourgeois world and its consequent irresponsibility in historical terms.” (81 mins., 35mm)
