RATED X: NOT FOR CHILDREN (BUT NOT FOR PORN)
Pier Paolo Pasolini Double Feature!
THE DECAMERON / ARABIAN NIGHTS
35 mm!

THE DECAMERON
1970, Park Circus/MGM, 111 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

This bawdy comedy is among director Pier Paolo Pasolini's most popular films. Based on Giovanni Bocaccio’s classic novel, the first film in Pasolini’s "Trilogy of Life" established the raw, visceral feeling of the series, using gorgeous period locations and combining equal parts poetry, social satire, slapstick and sexuality into a unique living tapestry. Pasolini himself appears as a Renaissance artist, "one of Giotto’s best students," hired to paint an enormous fresco on the wall of a church. With Ninetto Davoli, Franco Citti, Angela Luce. In Italian with English subtitles.


35 mm!

ARABIAN NIGHTS
IL FIORE DELLE MILLE E UNA NOTTE
1974, Park Circus/MGM, 130 min, Italy/France, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

One of Pasolini’s greatest achievements, ARABIAN NIGHTS is a shimmering, golden dream of a film, drunk on its own beauty, where story after story unfolds like leaves in an ancient Persian manuscript. Equaled only by Wojciech Has’ THE SARAGOSSA MANUSCRIPT in its exquisite, otherworldly tone and intricate, puzzle-box structure, ARABIAN NIGHTS is simply unforgettable. With Tessa Bouche, Ines Pellegrini, Ninetto Davoli, Franco Citti and Franco Merli.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles. | No one under 17 admitted.
