The Cinephile Film Club of the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), along with Sachin Chatte, will screen the 1964 Italian classic, The Gospel According to St. Matthew, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini (and starring Enrique Irazoqui, Margherita Caruso, Susanna Pasolini, Marcello Morante) on April 5, 2023 at Maquinez Palace, Panjim.
Membership to the film club is also open.
The Gospel According to St. Matthew is a cinematic rendition of the story of Jesus Christ (portrayed by non-professional actor, Enrique Irazoqui), and has English subtitles.
Pasolini reportedly chose Matthew's Gospel over the others because he felt that “John was too mystical, Mark too vulgar, and Luke too sentimental.” The film is considered a classic in world cinema, and the Vatican City newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, has described it as the ‘best film on Christ ever made’.
