Contemporary Perspectives on the Sacred in Pasolini’s La ricotta
- Author(s): Smith, Gregory Overton
- et al.
This paper explores the representation of the sacred in Pasolini's controversial 1962 film, La ricotta, including a careful examination of the historical and intellectual contexts of the sacred in Pasolini's art and thought. I contend that Pasolini's positions, which were so pertinent in the 1960s, still have relevance today.
