The Resurrection Tomb/The Jesus Discovery

This film begins where “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” left off. Following several lines of enquiry including DNA, statistics, chemistry and archaeology, filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici investigates questions raised in the original film. We also follow the excavation in Jerusalem of an unexcavated tomb from the time of Jesus – a first-time ever event. Rediscovered in the course of the first film, this tomb, now located under the patio of a private home, is close to the so-called “Jesus Family tomb” in which ossuaries, or bone boxes, were found bearing the names of the family of Jesus. In the 1st century, extended families often had adjacent tombs. Will this new investigation and archaeological excavation support or undermine the hypothesis that Jesus and his family were buried in the Talpiot tomb?

The Age of Anxiety

The Age of Anxiety is a film that delves into a crisis in motion – according to the World Health Organization, disorders related to dread are the most prevalent mental illnesses on the globe at the moment. Is this a disease of modernity? Or is our highly competitive and material culture itself undermining our nerves? The age of Anxiety explores these questions, while also investigating the role that pharmaceutical companies and even the psychiatric profession play in this phenomenon. Is our anxiety fueling an industry that in turn is profiting from and exploiting our dread in a vicious and self-perpetuating cycle?
