Janson Media announced today that it has licensed the religious documentary Images Of Jesus (1 x 53′) to Life Media International GmbH for broadcast on Polish Television.
While Jesus lived, no one made a record of His face. Since then every image of Jesus came from the minds and hands of those who lived after He died. This is the definitive art history of Jesus Christ. For two thousand years the sacred mysteries of Christianity have inspired artists of every generation. The look of Jesus emerges from the history of art.
Thus begins this fascinating film, produced by award-winning filmmaker Perry Wolff, which traces the evolving look of Christ from the first figurations from 320 AD of Jesus as an astonished shepherd boy, to the present day.
This is the definitive art history of Jesus Christ. Wolff documents the wooden icons of the Eastern church. The stained glass windows of the great cathedrals. The fresco paintings of the poorer churches. Woodcuts on paper. Silk paintings from the east.
