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

A passionate human story
23 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spectacular! This astounding film has a raw energy that shows scenes witnessed by thousands and their cameras and other scenes that happened but no one saw, when Sheen and Wildworks put on the 3 day groundbreaking event over Easter 2011. They collected stories from the whole town and deftly wove them into a deeply moving telling of the passion play about Port Talbot and its people through the eyes of a 'teacher' rather than Christ. The narrative weaves film and theatre together, capturing the best of both, with that touch of McKean magic. I love the fact that this film explores all aspects of humanity, hope, fear, humour, pain, love, anger, responsibility, oppression, the power of the crowd and the individual.
