    Son of Man Finally Comes to Cinemas

    I've been following the progress of the modern day, South African, Jesus film Jezile (Son of Man) for over 2 years now, eagerly awaiting its release in cinemas. Despite great reviews from Roger Ebert, The Daily Telegraph, Los Angeles Times, myself and various others who saw it at Sundance it's taken a while for it to gain a general release in cinemas.

    So those of you who are desperate to see it (and I've been emailed more about this film than any other over the past 2 years) will be pleased to know it is finally coming to cinemas in the UK. According to the new official website it will start "with an exclusive run at the Rich Mix Cinema in Bethnal Green" before "moving to Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Dublin and... venues across the UK and Ireland". The Rich Mix Cinema run starts on the 7th March; other dates and locations listed on the film's website are as follows:
    The British Museum, London: 14/Mar/08
    Showcase Cinema, Newham: 14/Mar/08
    Showcase Cinema, Manchester: 14/Mar/08
    Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry 15-16/Mar/08
    Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham: 15-16/Mar/08
    Riverside Studios, London: 19-20/Mar/08
    South Hill Park Arts Centre, Ringmead, Berkshire: 24-25/Mar/08
    It also looks like the DVD is to be released fairly soon. Thanks to Ron Reed for the tip off on this one.

    Incidentally, all my posts on this film (are still available including my review, a scene guide (with biblical citations) and the transcript of Jesus's main speeches.
