Thanks to Dan North, following its recent film studies podcasts entry, Film Studies For Free learned that all the talks from the British Film Institute's Pasolini Study Day, held on Saturday April 20, 2012, are freely available to listen to and download from iTunes U. Evviva!
All details and links to this fabulous resource are given below. Thanks to the BFI, as well as to FSFF's lovely colleagues at the University of Sussex -- especially to renowned Pasolini scholar and World Picture co-editor John David Rhodes -- for organising the day.
Stimulating and engaging programme of talks, discussions and screenings (hosted in collaboration with the University of Sussex’s Centre for Visual Fields and School of English) exploring the work and thought of Pasolini, one of the greatest filmmakers of his generation and a fiercely original – and controversial – public figure. A prestigious line-up of speakers includes Adam Chodzko, Rosalind Galt, Robert Gordon, Matilde Nardelli, Geoffrey Nowell-Smith, Tony Rayns, John David Rhodes, Filippo Trentin and his favourite actor: Ninetto Davoli.
