In the 1940s the young Pasolini lives in Casarsa, the birthplace of his mother. He discovers the Friulian landscape, language and traditions of the rural world and experiences his first romances. This contact with local people prompted his political activism with the Italian Communist Party and led to his teaching experience. The story is told by Nico Naldini, Pasolini’s cousin, who wrote the most famous Pasolini biography. He unveils two unavoidably linked paths. Both were discovering an unknown world, whose aesthetic and erotic violence they experienced in its cruel reality. This universe would become the basis for Pasolini’s oeuvre.

Federico Savonitto - 1

Federico Savonitto

Born in 1981 in Udine. After graduating in Trieste with an experimental thesis on Wim Wenders, he attended the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. During these years he developed a vision inclined to describe invisible aspects of reality: one’s relationship with the city, the formation and transformation of the characters’ identities in connection with myth and archetype, the contrast between everyday life and dream. His film PELLEGRINO was selected at Biografilm Festival 2017 and Trento Film Festival 2018.
