Reportage and the Tragic Chorus - encounters

free entrance - Sala Cinema
Carla Benedetti
In his film La rabbia (1962), Pasolini cut and edited footage from an old cinema newsreel, commenting on it with two voices off screen – one in prose, the other in poetry. This singular experiment in editing echoes the ethical power of the ancient tragic chorus, arousing spectators' pity for what they are seeing, where today's newscasts and endless flow of information generate moral indifference and emotional anaesthesia.
