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. Written by Francis Hellyer

Beautiful account of a unique event
27 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A combination of documentary & additional footage woven into a personal take on the storyline of the Passion. Visually striking ,it harnesses the energy of a unique live performance layered with Dave McKean's illustrative stylisation. Great performances from Michael Sheen , Matthew Aubrey,John-Paul McLeod,David Rhys Talbot, & many more local actors , plus the visually arresting backdrop of Port Talbot itself. Cameo appearances by the Manic Street Preachers , Iwan Rhion & Paul Potts in the 'last supper' at the Social Club.The audience for the live performance ,ultimately numbering tens of thousands,make an extraordinary finale in the crucifixion scene . Dave McKean has made a beautiful film of a unique event.
