A highly personal, enlightening document of Pasolini's search for landscapes and locations to use in The Gospel According to St. Matthew.
This rarely screened documentary follows Pasolini as he scouts locations and actors for his never-completed version of the classic Aeschylus tragedy, which he planned to set in contemporary Uganda and Tanzania.
A ravishing documentary portrait of the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, which entranced Pasolini during the shoot of The Decameron and whose threatened old quarter he hoped to preserve by having it declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
