In 1964 the book The Gospel According to Matthew. A film by Pier Paolo Pasolini was published on the occasion of the film's presentation at the Venice Film Festival. Fifty years later a first edition of the book from a renowned library in northern Italy was discovered in a flea market in a small town in southern Italy. How did it get there? What is the story? These questions were the starting point for research that attempts to sketch connecting lines between north and south, right and left, film and book on the move.
