Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma premiered posthumously at the Paris Film Festival on 22 November 1975, three weeks after the director’s assassination.

Inspired by the unfinished novel by the Marquis de Sade and considered by many to be the poetic testament of Pier Paolo Pasolini, who defined it as ‘a medieval mystery’, or a ‘sacred representation’, where every word and every event refers to something else, in a symbolic key, Salò remains a unique film, powerful and capable of remaining provocative even decades after its release.
