Maestà, the Passion of the Christ

Maestà, la Passion du Christ

Directed by Andy Guérif
France, 2015
History
  • None
  • No subtitles

Synopsis

Andy Guérif adapts the Maestà of Duccio as a tableau vivant: the tale of the Christ’s Passion in twenty-six successive panels, from the arrival in Jerusalem to the road to Emmaus.

Our take

Mel Gibson and DeMille adapted the Bible into drama, but nothing like this. For Good Friday, marvel at the French artist and director’s stunning transformation of the screen into a multi-panel moving image version of the Passion. A moving painting? Video art? Regardless, meant to be watched big!
