Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo – The Gospel According to St. Matthew


Thursday, April 17, 2014
6:30 pm


Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1964 Biblical adaptation of the Gospel of Matthew is one of the greatest retellings of the story of Christ, a cinematic rendering at once both passionate and poetic. Filmed entirely in the rocky, southern portions of Italy, and featuring a cast of non-professional actors, The Gospel According to St. Matthew was a revolutionary film that empowered the story of Jesus. There were no grandiose colors; instead it was all shot in black and white. Although the script adhered to the text of the Matthew’s Gospel in exacting fashion, “Gospel” was almost the antithesis of all Christian epics before it. The screening will start promptly at 6:30pm with an intermission during which Professor Spedaliere will lead a discussion with questions and answers. In Italian with English subtitles. |1964|137minutes|

Must register in advance and prepay. Members $15, Non-Members $25
