DIRECTOR: PIER PAOLO PASOLINI

CAST: MARIA CALLAS

Returning to the well of Greek myth, Pasolini fixed on the figure of Medea, the pagan priestess loved and left behind by the questing Jason, whose story became for Pasolini a symbol of the colonization of the classical world and the vanquishing of the precious forces of the irrational. Opera star Maria Callas, not singing and barely speaking in her only dramatic role, is riveting in her interpretation of the Medea of Euripides’ tragedy, a woman manipulated by a power-hungry adventurer, driven to vengeance by deceit.
