Mamoun introduces Pasolini’s ‘Gospel according to Matthew’

Mamoun Hassan gave a brief introductory talk on the work of Pasolini at the matinee screening of the epic, Gospel according to Matthew’ at the the National Film Theatre in London yesterday to a full house.

The film is being shown as part of the British Film Institute’s month-long retrospective of the work of the Italian Neorealist poet and film director, Pier Paolo Pasolini.  The talk was introduced by David Somerset, Education Curator of the BFI.

We would like to thank David Somerset and the staff of the National Film Theatre in London for allowing us to share this introduction to Pasolini.

Following the screening, Mamoun attempted to buy a DVD of the film at the BFI shop but was disappointed, yet pleased to find it was sold out – much to the surprise of the staff – who have re-ordered stocks. Get them while you can!
