Running time 92min
Comizi d’amore is Pasolini’s ciné-vérité investigation of Italian attitudes to sex and sexuality in 1964. Spot-sampling different areas of the country, Pasolini himself appears as an interviewer, asking subjects to discuss their freedoms, repressions and prejudices. Plus Pasolini’s surrealist contribution to the Silvana Mangano omnibus The Witches: The Earth Seen from the Moon (1966, 33min) reunites the stars of Hawks and Sparrows in a joyful fable.
