Pier Paolo Pasolini was an Italian film director, writer, poet, journalist, actor, and novelist. He started exploring his genius from the age of 7, when he wrote poetry for the first time. A controversial figure in the history of Rome, Pasolini wrote and directed some really hard-hitting films. These films spoke of passion and tragedy at the same time, making Pier one of the greatest filmmakers in 1960s and 1970s. His first film as a director and screenwriter was ‘Acattone’ (1961), which is considered to be the last neorealist film. The film was based on his own novel. He was arrested for his contribution in the blasphemous film ‘Ro.Go.Pa.G.’ (1963). Some of his other controversial films were ‘The Gospel According to St. Matthew’ (1964), ‘Oedipus Re’ (1867), ‘The Decameron’ (1971), and ‘Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom’ (1975). His films won many awards at the ‘Berlin International Film Festival,’ ‘Cannes Film Festival,’ ‘Venice Film Festival,’ and many others.
