On 2 November 1975, at the Idroscalo in Ostia, one of the greatest intellectuals of the twentieth century was murdered. Pier Paolo Pasolini was a troublesome figure for many, and his brutal murder has long played on the consciences of those who knew him for his work as a poet, writer and director. And over time this has given rise to countless theories on one of the most mysterious and controversial crimes of our time, which was simply passed off as a mere “sexually motivated murder”.
The film received two nominations at the Nastro d’Argento awards.
