Hawks and Sparrows | Pasolini 100 at Edinburgh Filmhouse

Two special screenings mark the centenary of the birth of Italian film director, poet, writer and intellectual Pier Paolo Pasolini, in association with Edinburgh Filmhouse

 

Hawks and Sparrows (Uccellacci e Uccellini)

Thursday, 17th March 2022 at 8.25 pm

Filmhouse, Cinema 2 

What holds this exasperating, playful, intellectual, faux-naif and overwhelmingly Italian fable together is simply Pasolini’s personal vision of the unresolved dialogue between Marxism and the Catholic Church. A vagrant (Totò) and his son (Ninetto Davoli) wander down a long road - the road of life, Pasolini is not afraid simply to tell us. They encounter a rational, talkative crow, who beguiles them on their journey with a fable in which they reappear as two friars entrusted by St Francis with the task of communicating with the birds. This journey of the left-wing crow and the feckless wayfarers is a film of complete individuality, apparent even from the sung credits, in which Pasolini gaily admits that he is risking his reputation.

We are delighted that actor Ninetto Davoli will be present at Filmhouse to introduce this screening, in conversation Dr Chiara Quaranta (Film Studies, University of Edinburgh).
