Pier Pasolini

Today is the anniversary of the murder in 1975 of Pier Pasolini. has an extensive list of resources and begins their short article on his films by saying, "Pier Paolo Pasolini, poet, novelist, philosopher, and filmmaker, came of age during the reign of Italian fascism, and his art is inextricably bound to his politics." Senses of Cinema examines his career. There is a documentary at youtube in 3 parts. part 1:

part 2:
