The Decameron

Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season


The first in Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life, Pasolini’s The Decameron weaves together a handful of tales by Giovanni Boccaccio into a dizzying, rhapsodic and bawdy celebration of humanity in all its contradiction and complexity. At turns erotic and playfully irreverent, The Decameron tells the story of thieves, nuns, dimwitted husbands, murderers, martyrs and saints with verve, humour and Pasolini’s incomparable sense of cinematic poetry.

The film will be introduced with live music from Simone Caffari and followed by a discussion led by University of Edinburgh’s Pasquale Iannone.
