Easter in Art
Exhibition on Screen
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 civilization’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 thus depicts the history of us all.

Featuring previously unseen footage this electrifying documentary marks 50 years since the first moon landing in 1969.
Although we all know how this mission turned out, the film generates and maintains a high level of suspense and wonder.
It is not a film about facts and statistics but how it feels to be in space and on the ground when history is being made. It captures the excitement and enormity of space exploration and somehow does not feel like something that happened 50 years ago.
“A stunning return to an incredible journey” (Peter Bradshaw – Guardian.)
