EPIC! 100 years of film & the Bible
Closed: 3 February 2013
EPIC! 100 years of film & the Bible explores the fascination that filmmakers from all over the world have had with the Bible. From Australia to Croatia, USA to Mexico, EPIC! showcases the unique and fascinating journey of the Hebrew Bible through film.
Comprising mostly rare vintage movie posters, stretching as far back as 1921, the exhibition also features ephemera including movie stills, lobby cards, press books and costumes. This exhibition explores how filmmakers have been mining the Bible for drama, exoticism and eroticism, taking audacious and creative liberties to heighten the sex, theatricality and violence since the turn of last century.
