‘Che cosa sono le nuvole’

For the first time in FILMETS’ history we will witness the presence of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s cinema. Monday October 22, at 7 pm, the Teatro Zorrilla will be hosting an extraordinary session of Cinema Històric. Four short films directed by Pasolini between 1962 and 1968 will be shown here, all quite unknown to the general public as the controverted Italian director is more well known for his feature films.

Exceptional guests

Besides the four short films directed by Pasolini, another great attraction of the Cinema Històric session is the appearance on screen of Ninneto Davoli, one of the Italian director’s favorite actors. He will appear in 3 of the 4 short films screened that afternoon at FILMETS, at the Teatro Zorrilla.
