PAINTINGS OF THE PASSION
Review by Maureen Bauer-McGahey
The Passion of Christ
A film. Producer, Director, and Photographer Philip Earnshaw
Running time 28 minutes: English.
Over 25 years ago, Canadian painter William Kurelek completed over 160 paintings depicting the Passion of Christ from Matthew’s Gospel. Four years after Kurelek’s death in 1977at the age of 50, Toronto filmmaker Philip Earnshaw filmed the canvases to produce a 28-minute film. Reviewers considered the depiction to be a sensitive treatment and described it as "fascinating, reverent and remarkable."
