MEDEA
1969, Unzéro Films, 110 min, Italy/France/West Germany, Dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

Two year after OEDIPUS REX, Pasolini returned to ancient Greek mythology, adapting all the famous trappings of Jason, his Argonauts and the golden fleece.

Once the king banishes her, her true powers are revealed as she plots her violent revenge. Legendary opera singer Maria Callas plays the titular role in her sole feature performance.
