The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years, and has been interpreted 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 Israel, the United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists – including Caravaggio, Raphael, Leonardo, El Greco, Bosch, Rembrandt, Munch, Michelangelo and more – have portrayed the Easter story through the ages.

Whether you are religious or not, this extraordinary film narrates not only the greatest story ever told, but arguably the greatest story ever painted – a story that reveals much about the history of civilisation.
