  • Title:
    Humble Beginnings

    Jodi de Souza

    HUMBLE BEGINNINGS by Jodi De Souza is the nativity story set in the contemporary world. It looks to present the start of Christ's humanity in a fresh and engaging way, enabling a different generation to understand and identify with His journey. Often the iconography used in images and media surrounding the nativity de-humanize Mary and Joseph and minimise their plight. An adorable obedient donkey, cute little lambs and a warm cosy manger ... But the reality was an incredibly painful and difficult beginning. The film looks to present the story within our contemporary context to de-mystify it, so that we may see it and the characters more clearly. If Jesus were born today, how would our world receive him?
