We are sorry to announce that due to the effects of COVID-19 (coronavirus) the release of 'Easter in Art' will be postponed until Easter 2021.

With more than half of our cinemas partners around the world already closed and many more expected to join them in the coming days, we have made what we deemed the necessary decision to keep you our audiences safe and give this film the cinema release it deserves.

We apologise if you have already purchased tickets for this film. If this is the case, please wait to hear from your local venue about their plans to reschedule. We hope you understand and look forward to welcoming you back to theatres for the release next Easter.

We have many more plans in the works to keep you entertained through these unusual times. Stay safe and stay tuned.

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is among the most significant historical events of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as interpreted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day.

Shot on location in Israel, the United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists – including Caravaggio, Raphael, Leonardo, El Greco, Bosch, Rembrandt, Munch, Michelangelo and more – have portrayed the Easter story through the ages. Whether you are religious or not, this extraordinary film narrates not only the greatest story ever told, but arguably the greatest story ever painted – a story that reveals much about the history of civilisation.
