Uriel Orlow




A little known film by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine, 1963) shows the Italian director planning the filming of The Gospel According to St Matthew (1964)Pasolini was so disappointed by what he found or didn’t find on the trip, that he decided to shoot the film about Jesus’ life in Italy instead. Sopralluoghi became a making-of documentary of a film that was never made, at least not as planned. Pasolini’s failed film serves as a conceptual and formal reference in Uriel Orlow’s Unmade Film (2012-13) also set in Israel/Palestine. Fragmented into its constituent parts, it too is an impossible film; an expansive collection of audio-visual works that point to the structure of a film but never fully become one. Orlow’s exhibition at Seventeen creates a suspension between the two ends of this ‘film’: the recce and the closing credits.
