If Jesus lived today, what people would he fight for? Who would his apostles be? In The New Gospel, winner of the award Documentary of the Year in Switzerland, Milo Rau and his team return to the origins of the gospel.

 The protagonist of The New Gospel is the Cameroonian activist Yvan Sagnet, the first black Jesus in European film history. In 2011, he himself works on a tomato farm when he starts to revolt against the exploitation of rural workers in the south of Italy. For this film, he revisits the largest refugee camp near Matera, the city in the south of Italy where Pier Paolo Pasolini and Mel Gibson previously shot their films on the life of Jesus. Sagnet finds his apostles in the camp. Together they set up the 'Rivolta della dignita', the Revolt of Dignity.

Numerous refugees, activists and citizens of Matera, the 2019 European Capital of Culture, are part of The New Gospel, as well as Marcello Fonte (European Film Award for Best Actor 2018), Enrique Irazoqui (Jesus in Pasolini's Il Vangelo secondo Matteo), and Maia Morgenstern (Mother Mary in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ).

"The film is a sledgehammer blow, both intellectually and emotionally."
Theaterkrant

'The New Gospel' has previously been acclaimed at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, and was also selected for the IDFA film festival in Amsterdam, FIFDH in Geneva, Soluthurn Film Festival, and Cinéma du Réel in Paris.

"What makes me the most happy about this film, is that it has a real impact", says director Milo Rau. "As a result of our revolt, the first houses have been founded around Matera where previously homeless protagonists now live in dignity. All of this with the support of the Catholic Church!"

Aftertalk

On 4 April at 10 pm NTGent organises an aftertalk with director Milo Rau, activist Yvan Sagnet and dramaturgs Frank Hentschker and Lily Climenhaga. You can watch this conversation via our website or on the Facebook event.



'The New Gospel has become Milo Rau's most accessible, tender and optimistic work until now.... Cinema of the future.'

    Hey,

    Is it possible to pause the livestream from 20h to 20h30, and then watch it? I would want to wait for someone who can only make it at 20h30. Thanks!

    Hello,

    Will the film, at some point, be available at a different time?
    (I have two kids and, unfortunately, 8 pm is the worst time for me to try to watch a film)
    Many thanks,

    E.
