    Looking at film interpretations of the stories in the Bible - past, present and future, as well as preparation for a future work on Straub/Huillet's Moses und Aron and a few bits and pieces on biblical studies.

    Nativity News vol.1

    I guess there is going to be a steady stream of posts on Catherine Hardwicke's current film in production The Nativity Story between now and its release, and no doubt a fair few from then onwards. So I'm going to run a "Nativity News" feature periodically from here on in.

    Anyway, top of the list is a blog dedicated to the film, simply called Nativity, run by Queen Spoo, an Art Therapist from Washington DC. There's a fair bit of good stuff there that I'll have to wade through shortly.

    Secondly, in order to make things a bit simpler I've made a central hub/links page with links and titles of all the posts on this blog, plus a few other key external links. This information should also be on the Index of Jesus Films Page.

    Finally, Mark Moring of Christianity Today has been on the set of the film along with Carol Glatz of the Catholic News Service. Both have a number of interesting things to say which I'll hopefully get to comment on later. Filming is currently taking place in Matera, Italy (where both Pasolini's Gospel According to St. Matthew and Gibson's The Passion of the Christ were filmed.
