Love Meetings

Love Meetings is a Cinema Verite investigation of sex in Italy, including impressive appearances by famed author Alberto Moravia and noted psychologist Cesare Musatti. Pasolini, the poet turned filmmaker, appears as the interviewer and asks a wide-range of individuals to share their tales of love-prostitution, homosexuality, marital and non-marital liaisons. The film is full of wit and sensuality, and is as topical as today's headlines.

Oedipus Rex

A dark and riveting retelling of the classic Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex. Unknown to himself, Oedipus kills his father and marries his mother. When the truth is discovered, he puts out his eyes and Oedipus wanders the streets until he is found by his daughter, Antigone, a common blind beggar.

Set in Morocco, the film is a visual wonder of desert landscapes and powerful Moorish architecture. The interesting cast include avant garde film and theater director Carmelo Bene, Julian Beck from New York's Living theater, and Pasolini himself as the High Priest. This remastered version is a must for any serious video collector.

Porcile Pigsty

Porcile, (Pigsty) the story of a cannibal in a medieval wasteland is interwoven with that of the son of an ex-Nazi industrialist in modern day Germany. The young German, who is more attracted to pigs than his fiancée, and the cannibal become sacrificial victims of their different societies. This strange, grotesque and thought provoking parable is filmed with such a calm beauty and underlying disgust that it gains a deep significance as an attack on the middle classes of the 20th century.
