Epic! 100 Years Of Film & The Bible
Quite possibly beginning with The Queen of Sheba in 1921, the Bible has been reinterpreted via the big screen through and through since cinema began. EPIC! 100 Years Of Film And The Bible explores the fascination filmmakers from all over the world have had with the doctrine. >From Australia to Croatia, USA to Mexico, EPIC! showcases the unique and fascinating journey of the Hebrew Bible through film. Comprising mostly rare vintage movie posters, stretching as far back as 1921, the exhibition also features ephemera including movie stills, lobby cards, press books and costumes. This exhibition explores how filmmakers have been mining the Bible for drama, exoticism and eroticism, taking audacious and creative liberties to heighten the sex, theatricality and violence since the turn of last century. Thanks to the Jewish Museum of Australia we have several double passes to give away.
