welles & pasolini

We're feeling slaphappy here in the offices at FSG. In honor of National Poetry Month, of course, may we present you a clip featuring:

1. Important Cinematic Art from FSG poet Pier Paolo Pasolini

2. Orson Welles parodying Pasolini

3. some pretty jazzy background music

Orson Welles and Pier Paolo Pasolini on the set of La Ricotta (1963)

Here you go:  "lo sono una forza del passato" ("I am a force of the past")


Yep, and here's more of that jazzy dance music. PLEASE stick around for the crucifixion tableau scene.
