Storyline

Easter. Port Talbot is in a battle for its life. Authoritarian forces have taken over and the town is in thrall to ICU, a sinister and merciless corporation depleting the town of its resources with scant regard for the residents. The atmosphere is explosive. Resistance is inevitable. When a company man and suicide bomber clash on the beach, catastrophe is only averted by the intervention of a softly spoken man who had disappeared 40 days earlier. Revealed later as the Teacher (Michael Sheen), he attracts followers and becomes a focus for the Resistance. His influence quickly draws the attention of ICU, who perceive him as a danger who must be removed at all costs. Taking inspiration from one of the defining narratives of our times, this contemporary re-telling of the Passion story took place across the town, with the people of Port Talbot as its cast, crew and heroes.

A beautiful and visceral experience
8 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This  film is an amazing feast for the senses and in a very visceral sense beautiful. Other reviewers have outlined the basic premise for the film, I just wanted to add my voice to the 'for gods sake what are you waiting for go & watch it' group. So often, because I love the world of cinema I  feed & escape into a world of celluloid which is 'edited sanitised' and direcst my emotions polemically during its one hour third minute journey; and more often than not that's fine, its escapism right?...  But  I really would not be over enthusing ( although I know its sounds like I am)if I say this film and it's premise allowed my heart and mind to engage upon a journey all of my own. A mixture of the backdrop of the town, the music, the amplification of some aspects whilst downplaying others, the faces in the crowd and the socio-political core of the story engaged me in a way I have not been for a long time.For a change I didn't feel like I was escaping, I felt a real sense of  connectiveness  being plugged in....  In this I feel it really helped that it sang to my core ethical belief of ' collective creativity. But whilst the whole 3 day passion event was a credit to everyone involved in its incipient creation. The film does stand alone as a beautiful & thought provoking piece in and of itself.
