Starring Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lello Bersani
In 1964, Pier Paolo Pasolini took to the streets of Italy, armed with a camera and microphone, to interview a cross section of ordinary Italians about their attitudes towards sex and sexuality. Interrogating passersby on their opinions regarding everything from homosexuality and sex work to gender equality and divorce (which was still illegal in Italy at the time), the ever-iconoclastic Pasolini offers a revealing glimpse of Italian sexual mores at a time when longstanding conservative attitudes were being challenged by the first stirrings of sexual liberation.
