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 Alsharif and Alexandre Koberidze.

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