Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini | 1969

With Maria Callas, Giuseppe Gentile, Massimo Girotti, Laurent Terzieff, Margaret Clementi

“Brilliant and brutal.”
—The New York Times

Superstar opera diva Maria Callas portrays the avenging sorceress of Greek legend in Pasolini’s primitivist retelling of Euripides’ tragedy. Spurned by her lover Jason, pagan priestess Medea unleashes a maelstrom of bloodshed. Italian iconoclast Pasolini’s heady mix of mythology, Marxism, and magic distills the tale to its most abstract and elemental, while Callas, in a nearly wordless performance, is electrifying as the woman who rains fire on her enemies.

Screening in a 35mm restoration.
