Pasolini’s vision of the life of Christ is astonishing in its inventiveness and understated, hypnotic power. Using non-professional actors (including the brooding Irazoqui as Christ and Pasolini’s own mother as the Virgin Mary), the film was shot near the southern Italian city of Matera, the same location that Mel Gibson would later use for The Passion of the Christ.

Haunting monochrome images of this ancient landscape are accompanied by a wonderful score which blends pieces by Bach with the wrenching blues of Billie Holiday.

The screening will be introduced by Jo Clifford.
