Pasolini Roma

Dramatized reading of the play "Calderón" by Pier Paolo Pasolini

Scene + Music


Francoist Spain, in 1967. Rosaura, the main character, wakes up three times with no memory of her life. Pier Paolo Pasolini took his inspiration from the text Life is a Dream by Calderón de la Barca to launch a fierce criticism of institutional power and the bourgeoisie."Calderón" is a provocative work of an absolutely contemporary intensity, despite being written in 1966/67.
