Beauty, the sacred and the cinema. The tenth edition of Tuesday at the Movies with Palazzo Strozzi comprises four evenings devoted to four giants whose work has made cinema history: Luis Buñuel, Andrey Tarkovsky, Martin Scorsese and Pier Paolo Pasolini. The retrospective explores the different artistic paths in the 20th century that marked the rediscovery and revisitation of stories and figures linked to the religious tradition of Christianity, “models” which the cinema interpreted as tools for breaking with the past and for reflecting on the countless inconsistencies of the modern era. From the provocational and irreverent approach of Buñuel to the great spiritual frescoes of Tarkovsky and from Scorsese’s “scandalous” portrayal of Christ to the epic and revolutionary vision of Pasolini, the retrospective takes its audience on a fascinating journey of exploration through the world of story, image, sound and vision.
