Synopsis

A provocative feature film which explores the mysterious circumstances surrounding the murder of film director Pier Paolo Pasolini in 1975. Pasolini's life was one of almost constant controversy. His contentious views on religion, politics and culture aroused the full spectrum of emotions in Italian society. His gritty, visceral work was simultaneously hailed as brilliant and condemned for its generous use of sex, violence and anti-establishment "blasphemy." Everything about him aroused scandal--even his death. The 17-year-old youth who bludgeoned him to death, then ran him over with the director's own Alfa Romeo, claimed Pasolini had made homosexual advances toward him. But whether this was the true motive was never satisfactorily answered. Pasolini's vociferous opposition to the ruling class may well have played a part--but so could countless other sensational declarations he made, against industry, the banks, the Mafia, the media... every branch of Italian society.
