The film Pasolini considered his favorite, Hawks and Sparrows stars the Italian comic Totò and Pasolini muse Ninetto Davoli in a comical, Brechtian fable partially set in the time of St. Francis. (89 mins., 35mm) Starring Jean-Pierre Léaud and Pierre Clémenti, the highly symbolic Porcile (Pigsty) consists of two alternating, complementary stories. The first depicts a man in an unspecified era who turns to cannibalism and ravages the countryside before his arrest. The second follows the son of a German postwar industrialist who favors the company of pigs to that of his leftist girlfriend. (98 mins., 35mm)
