Eros & Thanatos Movie Night: “Medea” by Pier Paolo Pasolini

A new movie night that explores the different shades of Eros, love, and Thanatos, death. It is a journey in the paradoxes of opposed forces conflicting against each other and creating a new form of creative expression.

Medea is a 1969 Italian film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, based on the ancient myth of Medea. Filmed in Göreme Open Air Museum’s early Christian churches, Pisa, and the Citadel of Aleppo, it stars opera singer Maria Callas in her only film role.

The film is largely a faithful portrayal of the myth of Jason and the Argonauts and the events of Euripides’ play The Medea concerning the betrayal of Medea by Jason and his eventual demise at her hands.
Pasolini’s dramatic and adverse personality is very much alive in this film which depicts Medea’s murder of her husband, children and her husband’s lover.
