Pier Paolo Pasolini:
Writing on Burning Paper
Autumn 2022 
Early-bird price
€25  Pre-order

Now available to pre-order at a special early-bird price, Pier Paolo Pasolini: Writing on Burning Paper will be released in autumn 2022.

A beautiful new book that pays homage to Pier Paolo Pasolini – the inspiration for the name ‘Fireflies’ and the subject of our very first publication.

On the centenary of his birth, this new publication honours Pasolini’s enduring influence by staging a dialogue between cinema today and Pasolini’s timeless films and words.

The book features Pasolini’s epic autobiographical poem “Poeta delle ceneri”, in a revised translation by esteemed poet Stephen Sartarelli, alongside original written and visual tributes by some of the most exciting filmmakers from across the contemporary landscape – including Radu Jude, Catherine Breillat, Jia Zhangke, Anocha Suwichakornpong, Roberto Minervini, Angela Schanelec, Gustavo Vinagre, Basma al-Sharif and Alexandre Koberidze.

More details, including the full list of contributing filmmakers, will be revealed in the coming months.
