Check out the NCJA Global/Foreign #language #MotionPicture of the Month: ‘El evangelio de la carne’ directed by Eduardo Mendoza de Echave #NoCriticsJustArtists

In the beginning, there was the book. A codex. A gospel lost and found. When a leather-bound codex is found in the dusty storeroom of a small Pennsylvania college, the secret history of zombies in the life and times of Jesus is revealed. Gospel of the Flesh interweaves the contemporary story of the book’s discovery with the shocking gospel itself. A father’s deathbed confession explains how the book was smuggled out of the country, restored and translated by a mysterious organization. The Gospel itself sheds new light on familiar stories, including Lazarus and the Last Supper, revealing the hidden connection between the undead and the eternal life. Gospel of the Flesh is a terrifying excavation of the long-buried foundation of Christianity. Like other Gnostic Gospels discovered before it (Thomas, Judas), the image of Jesus that emerges from Gospel of the Flesh is a departure. The Jesus that emerges from shadows of history here will change everything. Again.

Tokyo, the late 1960s… Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Toru Watanabe’s personal life is similarly in tumult. At heart, he is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko (Rinko Kikuchi), a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is, until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not –outgoing, vivacious, supremely self-confident—marches into his life and Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.
