Taboo Film Series

Witness some of the most controversial films of our time. Opening the series and setting the bar is Salo (120 days of Sodom) by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Made in 1975, it was banned in Australia until 2010. Be challenged by the themes and content of this classic and other local and international films embodying the essence of TABOO.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
