synopsisThis project is the feature film version of the Passion play that was performed throughout Port Talbot in Easter 2011.

Taking inspiration from the Easter story, this secular performance takes place in key locations around the town of Port Talbo. The story begins with a large corporation, ICU, appearing on the town’s shores, heralding big plans. At the same time, a local teacher goes missing, only to appear 40 days later with no memory of who he is.

Interacting with the townsfolk, he not only learns about himself, but revives the town’s sense of community. They band together and form a resistance against the machinations of ICU. The corporation’s leaders retaliate, and The Teacher becomes the scape goat.

    Will this be released in the US?

    • Madnad

      I am not sure at the moment Kimberly. I suppose it would depend if the film’s produces sought a distribution deal in the US. If I hear anything though, I will post it on the site.
