Through cinema Pasolini sought to express his conviction that the sacred quality of life is to be found not in any religion, but in life itself, in its naturalness. "All is sacred," so used to say this self-professed atheist. When asked at a press conference in 1966 "Why do you deal with religious themes, you yourself being an unbeliever?", Pasolini replied: "If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief." No religion could express the depth of his feeling for the sacred naturalness of life - and so he prefered to renounce them all. His unique contribution to the TruthQuest is in taking the concept of holiness out of the religious context and placing it where it belongs: in everyday life.
