Pier Paolo Pasolini / IT, 1968 / 98 min.
Pasolini shows how vulnerable the thin layer of civilisation is keeping a conventional, well-heeled Milan family together. One day, a young blonde god arrives, full of playful eroticism. He exercises a magnetic power of attraction over the members of the family. Pasolini's film inspired Ivo van Hove to create a play of the same title. See the exhibition All About Theatre About Film.

All About Theatre About Film
Film and theatre influence each other continuously. To celebrate that relationship between the two worlds, Eye has invited stage director Ivo van Hove and scenographer Jan Versweyveld to compile an exhibition.
