In Rome in 1975 outspoken filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini was found dead on a beach, arousing suspicions that continue to this day. Director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant) offers a kaleidoscopic view of the last day in the artist’s life (played by a sublime Willem Dafoe).

"Ferrara has come up with something pretty special here: a subtle, seductive, lamp-lit hymn to one artist’s talents from another in the process of rediscovering his own." Robbie Colin, The Telegraph

An eco-animated gem, this fable about a small boy tracing his missing father’s footsteps from a rural cabin to the big city (and beyond) doesn’t need words to spell out its message about the devastating impact of globalization. But Ale Abreu’s film is also a breathtakingly beautiful and inventive example of the animator’s art, a film of kaleidoscopic visual rhapsodies and delightfully curious investigations into shape and colour, transforming both natural and industrial landscapes into dazzling child’s-eye tableaux. With an infectious Brazilian-inflected score by Ruben Feffer and Gustavo Kurlat.
