The program

In the film, Andrei Ujica honors Pier Paolo Pasolini’s cinematography with a lyrical and powerful homage, in which rhythm and spirituality come together in an evocative montage, accompanied by a vivid soundscape. Thanks to a clever montage of images taken from Inspections in Palestine for the Gospel according to Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini, the film follows the Italian director and his theological consultant, Don Andrea Carraro, on a journey through Palestine in the 1960s, in their attempt to identify the settings of Pasolini’s biblical masterpiece. 2 Pasolini then follows the journey through the desert of Pier Paolo Pasolini and of Christ, up to the shores of an impetuous sea.
The conversation, in Italian and English with simultaneous translation, will be preceded by the screening of the film 2 Pasolini by Andrei Ujica.
