Giveaway – Win Hawks and Sparrows / Pigsty on Blu-ray

18 February 2016 11:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Win Hawks and Sparrows / Pigsty on Blu-ray, two films from one of the most controversial directors of all time. We have three copies to give away of these brilliant works from the pioneering Pier Paolo Pasolini.

From its sung opening credits, Hawks and Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini) is a wonderfully free-form picaresque fable that lampoons politics, religion and the state of modern Italy, as the beloved comic actor Totò, Pasolini regular Ninetto Davoli and a talking crow wander the landscape through a gauntlet of unexpected encounters.

Pigsty (Porcile) is one of his most controversial works, interspersing the mute wanderings of cannibalistic savages against a barren, volcanic earth with the tale of Julian (played by Nouvelle Vague icon Jean-Pierre Léaud), his radically politicised fiancée Ida (Anne Wiazemsky, Au Hasard Balthazar), and the financial machinations of his father Herr Klotz in contemporary industrialised Germany.

Both films demonstrate a restless, pioneering artist’s »
