This film blends music, sound effects, spoken word and motion graphics to evoke the experience of the few who found Joseph, Mary and their newborn in the animal enclosure. Their philosophical quandaries guide us in the wonder at the ancient root of today’s popular celebration.

The film’s text and seven works of art are taken from Mark R. Turner’s book Verse & Visions from Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. You can purchase the book of 13 works of art and poetry in large format
