Bedouin tents, a stall selling clay bowls, pumpkins and carrots. A growling camel pulls against his tether. A boy in ragged clothes sits motionless on a donkey. Clouds glide across the wintry bun. "Motore, silenzio, action." The scene comes to life. Donkeys, horses, the camel, men and women in Arab dress move up and down the hill in busy procession. Two black-robed women run breathlessly through the crowd at the foot of an oak scaffold and the boy falls off his donkey. Franco Zeffirelli stamps his feet, blows a gold whistle and the cameras stop. "There is too much movement. It looks like Wall Street," he says in angry English. "We wait for the clouds for an hour and then that -- falls," he complains in Italian. Zeffirelli is filming "The Life of Jesus" and this is a small but important scene, Mary and Martha coming to find Jesus crucified on Calvary. They are stopped by a Roman soldier. A centurion, Ernest Borgnine, intervenes and lets them through. Mary Magdalen darts from the crowd to join them. It takes all morning to film the scene but finally everything works and Zefflrelli calls a lunch break. A designer and director of opera and theater who made his film reputation with "Romeo and Juliet" nine years ago, Zeffirelli considers the life of Jesus "the greatest story material that ever existed" -and the most mishandled. "With the possible exception of the film that Julien Duvivier made in Provence in the 1930s, the material has always been used for a cheap, popular fairy tale," he says. "Jesus' Christ Superstar" he dismisses as a "vulgarization." Zefftreili has a budget of up to $11 million, some of it from Sir Lew Grade of England's Independent TV and Italy's HA1-TV, and six hours of television time in England, Italy and the United States. The scries is aimed for Easter 1977 and General Motors already has paid $3 million to sponsor it on NBC. There also are plans to release a shortened movie version. Zeffirelli chose locations in Morocco and Tunisia for their ageless, primitive quality and their people who, although Moslem, "have the same fen or and the same mystic religiousness as the Hebrew people had." But he wants to film the Passover scene in Jerusalem -"for the faces." "We are telling a story painted as a giant tapestry about a whole period that revolves around this extraordinary man," Zeffirelli says. "In particular we are focusing on one point which I find of great importance and that is that Jesus was first and foremost a Jew. "I wish to stress the point that so long as Jesus was living and so long as even his Apostles were living their religion was the Jewish faith. In other words, the drama that I want to tell is the drama of Uiu Jewish people and their long wait for the coming of the Messiah." Zeffirelli is a compactly built man, almost 52, with fine graying hair and intent blue eyes. His crew says his flashes of anger are mainly for show. They gel along with him. Zeffirelli has cast almost a dozen stars in this production, but most of them, like Borgnine, have small roles.. Peter Ustinov is Herod the Great, Christopher Plummer Herod Antipater, Michael York John the Baptist, Valentine Cuiiese is Herodias, Hod Sleiger Pontius -Pilate, Sir Ralph Richardson Simeon, James Mason Joseph of Ara- mathea, Sir I^aurence Oliver NicodemiiK, and Claudia Cardinale plays the adulteress.

Their recording of "Love Will keep Vs Together" made them into recording stars. (AP Wirephoto) By DIANE RAY Tom Miller's Graduate Thesis Exhibition at the Mariani Gallery on the UNC campus, presents an interesting elucidation of theoretical approaches to the art making process. In his contemporary style paintings, part of the imagery consists of that very personal visual manifestation of the means we use to express ourselves, handwriting, combined with the mechanical perfection of a precise, carefully measured, apparently superimposed grid. The result is an amalgum of the two approaches, formalist and expressionist, which also reflects the two aspects of the human condition, the intellectual and the emotional. A fascinating idea is involved here, that of combining I he two elements, one which is seldom thought about, but really should be taken into consideration more often. Most contemporary artists tend to emphasize one aspect of human nature at the expense of tire other. They either attempt to emulate and sometimes actually employ the rational precision of the machine (computer art, graph drawings, photo-realist painting) or go to the other extreme with the resulting work being so heavily laden with emotional psychological significance that its formal function as a work of art is obscured or obliterated. Much of the "social comment" work falls into this category. Miller's works lean a little toward the intellectual side, probably because the handwriting is almost as carefully controlled as the grid and because the use of airbrush procedures produce a very mechanical surface. The drawings are more direct manifestations of the problem, more personal, with a resulting sensitivity which the paintings occasionally lack. There are some interesting problems dealt with on the purely visual level. On several it is difficult to ascertain the spatial relationships. The grid appears superimposed but is actually part of tho h?.Fe, composed n f the ra'.v canvas. In others the paint creates a rich ambiguity, there is no depth illusion but the surface becomes indefinite. In painting No. 10, one of the most attractive, the red handwriting, because of the saturation and warmth of color, appears to come forward. The color play of No. 11 creates the illusion of an undulating atmosphere. There is great subtlety in the interaction between the iridescent greys and oranges of No. 7. The grid is a necessary device to provide structure but is more pleasing when it is less evident. Daiuj Queen brazier ·Reg. U.S. Pit.OH., Am. D.C.Corp.
