Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

The Melbourne Cinémathèque will be hosting an exclusive screening of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s controversial Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom. The film has been banned several times in Australia, courtesy of graphic depictions of rape, abhorrent torture and coprophagia. The Melbourne Cinémathèque have side-stepped the ban by obtaining screening approval, which will see the Cinematheque presenting contextual introductory materials to the film and its director from 3.30pm, with the screening kicking off at 7pm. This one is for hardcore cinephiles keen to see something they'd never have a chance to see in a cinema (let alone at home!), and if you're squeamish or sensitive, maybe consider researching the film a bit first.
