    Bangladesh's Dancing Jesus

    Bangladeshi director Rafiq Mahmud has released a DVD exploring Jesus' teaching through music and dance. Mahmud, a muslim, debuted the film at the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Bangladesh Office earlier in the month to an audience of Catholics, Protestants and Muslims.

    The production is actually an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore's writings on Jesus. Tagore, was a Bangladeshi poet, author and playwright who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. His writings on Jesus tended to emphasise his humanity and his humanitarian message.

    The DVD went on sale at the start of the month. More information is available from CathNewsIndia.
