For this meet up we are going to Rome!!! The movie museum, “La Cinematheque” is running a Retrospective dedicated to the film director P. Pasolini.
If you are not too familiar with Paolo Pasolini, he is an essential figure of Italian –and European cinema. I could not put it better than
“Between revolution, philosophy and the whiff of scandal, at the same time political and poetic, Pasolini personified artistic engagement in a challenging and human way right up until his brutal death on a beach in Ostia in 1975.” There will be screening of some of his films (from 'Accatone' to 'Theorem' and 'Salo'), an exhibition on Pasolini's Rome in the form of an interactive map …” and at the same time another exhibition, dedicated to French director Jean Cocteau is also taking place… Very different style, plenty to see (not really a problem if you are not fluent in French)!!!
The plan is to meet at 7pm for a drink/dinner in a nice bar nearby (TBC later) to get to know the group, then head off for the late opening of this exhibition (till 10pm)!
It is only 5 Euros to get in!
Looking forward to it! J
