What would Jesus preach in the 21st century? Who would his disciples be? And how would today’s bearers of secular and spiritual power respond to the return and provocations of one of the most influential prophets and social revolutionaries in human history? Set in the southern Italian town of Matera, director Milo Rau and Cameroonian political activist Yvan Sagnet create a biblical story that couldn’t be more topical. An authentically political as well as theatrical and cinematic New Gospel for the 21st century emerges. A manifesto of solidarity with the poorest, a revolt for a more humane world.
