The Brand New Testament
Friday, January 13, 2017 - Sunday, January 15, 2017
A film by Jaco Van Dormael
God exists, and He’s a jerk. He lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels and never gets out of His pajamas. Ea, his overshadowed daughter, has had enough of her Father’s abuse. She plots to dismantle her father’s work by hacking into His computer and leaking to the entire world—by text message—the only thing He has over them: their inevitable death date. In escaping her Father, she sets off to gather apostles to write her own New Testament. During this comical and witty journey they learn to celebrate life and love, and provide us with Jaco Van Dormael’s dark and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?
“A sweet and blasphemous satire.” – The Guardian
“Irreverent and wildly inventive!” – Variety
