New Testament (excerpt)

New Testament (2007, 20 minutes, HD video, stereo)
Written, directed, and edited by Joshua Thorson
Music by Nick Hallett and Woody Sullender
With Paul Sepuya, Larry Miller, Viva Ruiz, and Matt Dunn

Premiered at MIX NYC, 2007.

Loosely inspired by an amalgam of ideas from DH Lawrence's "The Man Who Died" and "Apocalypse," 
and Philip K Dick's "Valis" trilogy. A governmental program to genetically engineer the second coming of Christ
backfires (in several ways). The Christ-figure escapes his confines in a hallucinatory line of flight 
and finds
himself on a faraway beach with Isis, who heals his wounds and shows him love.
