The Gospel According to St. Matthew

Directed by Pasolini

An Easter special that offers a very different take to that of a recent film on the same subject. Adhering strictly to the Biblical text, Pasolini describes the life of Christ from the Annunciation to the Resurrection. This portrayal is of Jesus as a peasant who speaks for the poor, the weak and the disenfranchised.
