Pasolini prossimo nostro


Directed by: Giuseppe Bertolucci

We are on the set of the films Salň and 120 days of Sodom. Even though the film caused many passionate discussions, the calm and rather happy Pasolini allows a small team led by the journalist Gideon Bachmann to follow him. Pasolini and Bachmann have a long and unusual conversation.
