Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1999 Video)
In this filmed adaption of the long-running musical, we see the story of Joseph, son of Jacob. The favoured son, he is betrayed by his jealous brothers and sold into slavery and driven to Egypt. Though beset with adversity, Joseph perseveres through wit and faith and becomes the governor of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh. This all the sets the scene for when he meets his brothers who have come to Egypt to purchase food.- Written by Kenneth Chisholm <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The Narrator draws a school audience repeatedly into a very 20th century 'Technicolor' production of the Biblical story. Patriarch Jacob lived happily with his dozen sons, but his favoritism for bright Joseph, symbolized by the gift of a spectacular multi-colored coat, makes his brothers so jealous they end up selling him as a slave and staging his death. He rises in the service of wealthy Potifar, though his adulterous wife is falsely accused and incarcerated. His gift of dream-telling however wins him Pharoah's favor, in charge of planning for the 7 years of penury after 7 good ones he prophesied. When his brothers come to beg for food, it's time for reckoning and nobility.- Written by KGF Vissers
