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.
