Pasolini
Abel Ferrara has always been known for creating characters and stories that delve into the most extreme of human behaviours, but for his latest couple of films, he's tackled real life people whose actions speak for themselves. Earlier this year the filmmaker unveiled "Welcome To New York," the fictionalized tale of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and now just a couple of months later, Ferrara is in Venice where he's premiering "Pasolini," a feature about famed and controversial filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. And a pretty great first trailer has arrived.
