Join Classics Professor Richard Fletcher in the Heirloom Café at the Wexner Center for an informal discussion of the Classical Myths that inspired Pasolini’s films - Oedipus Rex (1967), Medea (1969) and Notes for an African Oresteia (1970). The conversation will include an outline of the general myths, how they were retold in ancient Greek Tragedy and how Pasolini transformed them for the modern world. The conversations will be held in afternoons (at 3pm) on the days of the showing of each of Pasolini’s ‘Classical’ films.

Oresteia (Agamemnon, Tuesday Feb. 25th, 3pm
