February 5, 21012 @ 1pm - Phoenix Art Museum:

The Gospel According to St. Matthew (Film)

Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote and directed this documentary-style look at the life of Jesus Christ. Presenting Christ as a revolutionary figure, Pasolini, himself an atheist, created one of the most compelling and by many standards accurate depictions of the Christian savior's final years, one that is particularly interesting given the director's separation from the belief. Runtime: 137 min. Tickets to this film are $5, FREE for Museum members.

This film is being run in conjunction with Sacred Word and Image: Five World Religions on view January 4th - March 25th.
