Color of the Cross

A controversial look at the last two days of Jesus' life with a different slant on commonly held assumptions about him. As far as I know this is the first time he has been portrayed as a black man on screen. The film even goes so far as to forward the theory that the crucifixion of Christ was racially motivated. This is dangerous ground and the makers of the film do not tread lightly as they present their interpretation of the history of Christianity. The film was extensively researched through readings of the bible and historical documents. It focuses on four main areas of the story of Christ: his disciples, what the Romans were thinking at the time, how the rabbis in the Sanhedrin reacted to what was happening, and the family life of Joseph and Mary.
