IFC Screens “Salo, Or The 120 Days of Sodom”

Friday, June 8th, 2012 by

The Independent Film Center will be screening the infamous and very rare 35mm print of the Italian film Salo, Or the 120 Days of Sodom as a part of their Queer/Art Summer film series on June 11th at 8 pm.

The screening will be preceded by an introduction by producer Peter Cramer and actor Jack Waters who selected the film as one that has inspired them. The legendary East Village artist and activist duo first saw the film in Cologne in 1984 and said that it mirrored “the residual sense of post-Nazi Germany still intact.”

Set after the fall of Mussolini’s Italy, Salo focuses on four fascist leaders who kidnap 18 teenage boys and girls and subject them to extreme sexual and mental torture. A terrifying and indulgent experience, this film arouses emotions unlike any other. The film, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, remains banned in several countries today for intensely explicit violence, sadism and sexual depravity.

What better way to spend your Monday night than experiencing this truly historical film? For more information check out the IFC website.
