Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini
Italy, 1964, 92 min
Virginity, homosexuality, prostitution, sex education—these are the subjects iconic director Pier Paolo Pasolini tackles with a broad range of interlocutors from all over Italy, from the cosmopolitan youths of the sexually liberated North to church-going peasants in the South. The result is a complicated portrait of 1960s Italy—which is surprisingly similar to contemporary Romania—and, indirectly, a portrait of Pasolini himself: a director famous for frank representations of sexuality in fiction films who, at this conclusion of this documentary, reveals himself to be an incurable romantic.
