GETHSEMANE: BLACK JESUS
Fred Hampton was the chairman of the Black Panther Party in Chicago. Similar to the accounts of Jesus Christ, his efforts in helping his community and leading by example was seen as a threat to the authorities which led to his fatal death. Gethsemane: Black Jesus is a re-telling of the song from the iconic musical Jesus Christ Superstar through the lens of Chairman Hampton.
"This version of Gethsemane is certainly powerful" -Tim Rice
This project has been funded by the Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) as part of their Solidarity Fund Development Grant.
