The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history.
From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilisation’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day.
Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and in doing so they capture a vital part of the history and culture of the past 2,000 years thus depicts the history of us all.
A fascinating exploration of the ambition, the pain, the suffering, and the glory of this timeless narrative.
Displaying some of the greatest artworks ever produced.

"Anyone who has any interest in art...anyone who has any interest in visual culture...has to be interested in the Christian story." Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times
