Fear of a Black Jesus??

So last week, Sundance introduced a film entitled "Son of Man", a South African film that portrays Jesus as an African revolutionary and Mary as a virgin who argues with the angels. Director Mark Dornford-May asserts, ""We wanted to look at the gospels as if they were written by spin doctors and to strip that away and look at the truth...We have to accept that Christ has been hijacked a bit -- he's gone very blond-haired and blue-eyed". It slaways nice to see people interpreting and analyzing images that have been co-opted for so long. I'm definitely going to see this film and I suggest you all do the same!
