In The Gospel According to St. Matthew, Pasolini mainly cast nonprofessionals while referencing nearly 2,000 years of Christian art in creating the look of the film and its characters. In telling the story of Christ, Pasolini adheres closely to its source text, drawing much of the dialogue directly from the biblical book. (137 mins., 35mm) The documentary In Search for Locations follows Pasolini as he scouts for locations in Palestine, though his film of the gospel would be shot entirely in southern Italy. (55 mins., 35mm)
