This unconventional Canadian film focuses on an acting troupe hired to stage a Passion play about the life of Jesus. Led by Daniel (Lothaire Bluteau), the actors, all struggling with their own issues, work on a bold interpretation of the Biblical tale that challenges accepted Christian thinking and brings a burst of outrage from the Roman Catholic priests who recruited them. As the story progresses, Daniel's life starts to echo the trials of Jesus in unexpected and poignant ways.
Before the film, there's a brief talk from Dr Carol O'Sullivan from the University of Bristol - who's currently researching the history of the translation of films.
To top it all off, you'll get a free glass of wine (the normal stuff - not holy wine) or juice, and nibbles upon arrival.
Why we love Electric Shadows in the Cathedral: "Electric Shadows in the Cathedral" is a film series brought to you inside the impressive Bristol Cathedral - bringing real gravitas and a sense of wonder to the films.
As befitting its location, religious themes will be touched upon - but this is about watching great films in an awesome location.
Each film will be introduced by different guest speakers from across Bristol - pulling out themes and strands to engage with the film. For instance - what is the connection between Sarah Connor of the Terminator and Mary, the Mother of Christ?
