Son of Man film out next month in u.s. February 11, 2010

Four years ago I mentioned the release of a new Jesus film called Son of Man which resituates the Jesus story in contemporary Africa and portrays Jesus as a nonviolent revolutionary. At the time I mentioned how the film could provide an alternative to the hysteria- and piety-surrounded (and decidedly apolitical, unless you count its anti-Jewish undertones) Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ. It took a while, but Son of Man will finally be released on DVD in north america in March.

The site Rejesus posted a brief but interesting review of the film here. And here is the trailer:
