Banned, censored and reviled the world over since its release, Pasolini's final and most controversial masterpiece is presented here fully uncut and uncensored in a new restoration. The content and imagery of Salò is extreme: it remains the power to shock, repel and distress. But it remains a cinematic milestone: culturally significant, politically vital and visually stunning.

Based on a novel by the Marquis de Sade - and taking as its setting the miniature fascist republic which Mussolini established in 1944 in Italy - this is a film about power, corruption, and the degradation of the human body. It is a devastating, angry cry from one of the most controversial auteurs in cinema history.
