Descriptions Whoever Says the Truth Shall Die

Philo Bregstein tells us this film looks at Pasolini’s life and art to explain why he died. The film traces Pasolini’s life chronologically – family roots, hiding during World War II, teaching, moving to Rome, being arrested and acquitted many times, publishing poems, getting into film, being provocative, and being murdered. Interviews with Alberto Moravia, Laura Betti, Maria Antonietta Macciocch, and Bernard Bertolucci are inter-cut with readings of Pasolini’s poems and with clips from four films – primarily the Gospel According to St. Matthew – to illustrate his changing ideas and points of view. Bregstein makes a case for Pasolini’s being lynched.
