PASOLINI AT THE RANDWICK RITZ - A genuinely rare screening of one of his earliest films LOVE MEETINGS (1964) 4.00pm Sunday 30 October

Possibly the first ever, and maybe the only ever, Sydney screening of this remarkable feature length documentary. 

Microphone in hand, Pier Paolo Pasolini asks Italians to talk about sex: he asks children where babies come from, young and old women if they are men's equals, men and women if a woman's virginity matters, how they view homosexuals, how sex and honor connect, if divorce should be legal, and if they support closing the brothels (the Merlina Act). He periodically checks in with Alberto Moravia and Cesare Musatti. Bersani is intrusive and judgemental, prodding those who answer.

Film will be introduced by Jessica Ellicott, a film critic and programmer at Golden Age Cinema & Bar. Her writing on film has featured in The Big Issue, SBS Movies, Runway Journal and 4:3. Jessica’s experience in the film industry spans independent distribution, festivals and media, gained across roles at Transmission Films, SBS Movies and Sydney Film Festival.
