Join us for a special screening of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s feature-length documentary Comizi d’amore (Love Meetings). Developed during a period of rapid modernisation and socio-economic transformation across Italy, the film examines Italian attitudes towards sex and sexuality, relationships, gender and contemporary collective identifications.

Love Meetings follows Pasolini and a small camera crew through Italy where, at beach resorts, town centres, universities, fields and factories, they interview groups of students, children and co-workers. Filmed in the cinéma-vérité style, Pasolini himself often appears just out of shot with microphone extended, posing questions which reveal their subjects’ freedoms and prejudices, or ‘inversions’ and ‘perversions’. Pasolini divides this cinematic report into a series of ‘ricerches’ or researches.

All tickets £6.50

The film will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone, Lecturer in Film Studies, School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures, University of Edinburgh

Comizi d’amore is presented with The Common Guild in conjunction with the exhibition by Sharon Hayes, ‘Ricerche’, at 5 Florence Street, Glasgow, G5 0YX.
