Director "The Young Messiah”
”I actually felt a tremendous responsibility to portray Jesus as biblically consistent in a way that's possible”.
The film revolves around a fictional interpretation of a seven-year-old Jesus, who tries to discover the truth about his life when he returns to Nazareth from Egypt.
Producer "The Young Messiah”
"I read the script and I realized...this is an unbelievable weight for these parents, Mary and Joseph, to carry on their shoulders without telling their son”.
Using historical backdrops, this biblical drama was predominately shot in Matera and Rome, Italy.
