Who Killed Pasolini?

1995 / 100min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MARCO TULLIO GIORDANA

Giordana’s rabble-rousing film reopens the cold case of Pasolini’s death on the beach at Ostia back in 1975, beginning his true crime drama with the arrest of Pino Pelosi (Carlo De Filippi), accused of killing the controversial public intellectual Pasolini, who many powerful forces in Italian society would have been perfectly happy to see dead. In recreating the trial of the accused that followed, Who Killed Pasolini? dwells on the inconsistencies of the official story, asking: Did Pelosi act alone? Did he have outside encouragement? And what really happened that night?
