SOPRALLUOGHI IN PALESTINA PER IL VANGELO SECONDO MATTEO

In 1963 Pasolini traveled to the Holy Land to find fitting locations for his new film IL VANGELO SECONDO MATTEO. He visited Israel, Palestine, Syria and Jordan. He spent some time in Jesus’ domains to find inspiration for his film. But the places did not match his imagination: The ‘modern’ Holy Land had lost its chimera of nativeness and archaism, and so Pasolini ended up shooting the film in Southern Italy. This documentary film is the result of the material developed during this journey.
