Uphill for Jesus // 2008

As an outsider, we follow a group of evangelical Christians as they carry a large wooden cross two miles uphill. 

This visual poem is reminiscent of old Technicolor biblical epics, as the crosses are placed atop a hill, under a blaze of gaudy sunlight.

It is the earliest of my super-8 films that I still show. 

Ben Barton // 2008 // 3 mins
