Title: Nerolio
Director: Aurelio Grimaldi
Specs: Italy 1996 video 87min subtitled

Out In Africa Film Festival
Filmed in melancholic black and white, this semi-biographical film fictionally and brilliantly explores the controversial art, cantankerous opinions and unrepentant actions of the last days of the Italian auteur, Pier Paolo Pasolini. Suffused with the characteristically contemplative style of the famous poet, writer and filmmaker, Nerolio develops through the sullied genius' lonely passion for Italy and Italians, and his unquenchable desire for the muscular physiques, skin and hair of young men.

We loiter with him in the streets as he anonymously watches others, re-visits Sicily, and spends time with his mother, but the narrative mostly dances between the poet's uncompromising sound-bites on everything from love and sexuality to socialism and the church, and the challenging, respectfully irreverent and bitchy interviews with the young, pretty and deviously ambitious aspiring writer, Valerio.

Aurelio Grimaldi is a guest of the festival.
