What are the Clouds? (From: Caprice Italian Style)(Che cosa sono le nuvole? [Capriccio all'italiana])

  • Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

  • Italy, 1968, Italian, 22mins, DCP

  • Cast: Totò, Ninetto Davoli, Laura Betti

In Pasolini’s metatheatrical play of the Shakespearean tragedy, the actors-puppets playing a comic version of Othello and lago on stage are all of a sudden torn apart by the angry spectators. As the two puppets are disposed in a remote dump, they are ironically freed from manipulation. Seeing the blue sky for the first time, they admire the clouds stupefied. Screening with Theorem.
