The VITO Project is delighted to present Theorem, Pier Paolo Pasolini's masterpiece, released in 1968 and starring Terence Stamp, Laura Betti, Silvana Mangano, Massimo Girotti, and Anne Wiazemsky.
The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Robert Chevara, director and writer, and Simon McCallum, archive projects curator for the BFI. Seán McGovern, ardent cinephile and VITO team member, will be our MC for the evening.
Theorem concerns the arrival of a beautiful and enigmatic young stranger (Terence Stamp) in the household of a typical bourgeois family in Milan. The mysterious visitor seduces each member of the household then leaves, just as suddenly and mysteriously as he came. After his departure, the brief taste of sexual or emotional awakening they have enjoyed forces each of them to confront what was previously concealed by the trappings of bourgeois life.
This is a free event but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project. All donations go towards covering the costs associated with running the event (film licences, heating and lighting, rental of the premises, printing, promotion etc). Donations are VITO's only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person just to cover our costs. So PLEASE DIG DEEP and give us a paper donation if you are able to.
The project is endorsed by BFI Flare: London LGBT film festival, 56 Dean St, QX Magazine, Gay’s the Word, ACT UP London, Gay Mates, a Change of Scene, the Cara Trust, I-Base, UK-CAB, Positively UK, Gaydio, NAZ Project, Frank Byrne & his walkers and Broad Appeal Podcast.

All future showings in the series will be the last Wednesday of the month
