Pasolini Study Day
Join us for an engaging programme of talks, discussions and screenings exploring the work and thought of Pier Paolo Pasolini.
Join us for a stimulating and engaging programme of talks, discussions and screenings (hosted in collaboration with the University of Sussex’s Centre for Visual Fields and School of English) exploring the work and thought of Pasolini, undoubtedly one of the greatest filmmakers of his generation, and a fiercely original – and controversial – public figure. A prestigious line-up of speakers includes artist Adam Chodzko and academics Dr. Rosalind Galt (University of Sussex), Prof Robert Gordon University of Cambridge), Dr. Matilde Nardelli (UCL), Prof. Geoffrey Nowell-Smith (Queen Mary, University of London) and Dott. Filippo Trentin (University of Warwick). Convened by John David Rhodes (University of Sussex; author of Stupendous Miserable City: Pasolini’s Rome), the day will conclude with a roundtable discussion chaired by Season Curator Tony Rayns. We’ll also hear from Julian Cole, who will introduce his 1988 film Ostia, starring Derek Jarman as Pasolini. And we’re delighted to be welcoming actor Ninetto Davoli, star of many of Pasolini’s films, for an in-depth onstage conversation with John David Rhodes.
