    • Synopsis
    • There's a new Jesus in town! For 88 years a small town has pantomimed the story of Christ in a 'unique' construction of Jerusalem built into an Oklahoma Buffalo reserve. It's real-life Christopher Guest meets Fellini in a comedic, poignant, cinematic 'hybrid' documentary chronicling a 300-strong amateur cast, a 6-hour production, and Zack, the venerable paperboy-cum- Jesus actor who's massive secret threatens to derail the entire show. In association with Sky UK and SBS Australia. Directed by Billie Mintz & Julian Pinder.
