Contemplate what Jesus’ Passion has to do with the world here and now. This non-verbal, short art film offers photos, drawings, music and sound effects associating the gospel accounts of Jesus’ victimization with our own troubles today. It is meant to assist viewers in growing beyond theological formulas imposed upon the events of Jesus’ death and suggest that it demonstrated his solidarity with our universal experience. Realizing we are included in this Passion can give us hope that the Resurrection also includes us. The Rev. Rick Malec requested the production of this contemplative film to play in the sanctuary of United Methodist Church of Temecula, California, on Good Friday when people come to devote special time remembering Jesus’ ordeal and death.
