A Black Jesus

Deutschland 2019/2020 Dokumentarfilm

Summary

A statue of a black Jesus has been venerated in a small Sicilian village for centuries. Edward, a 19-year-old Ghanian from the local refugee center, causes a stir within the community when he asks to be one of the bearers of the statue in the annual procession alongside the white locals. The community is divided. On a journey exploring the source of fear and prejudice about "the others", the villagers are called upon to question their own identity – starting with the very icon of their own belief: a black Jesus.
