On Thursday, May 12th, Colorado Springs will be one of only 16 cities selected for a pre-release sneak preview of the film Last Days in the Desert.
Directed by Rodrigo Garcia, the film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Cinematography by three-time Oscar winner Emmanuel Lubezki (The Revenant, 2015, Birdman, 2014, and Gravity, 2013)
Last Days in the Desert follows Jesus (played by Ewan McGregor) in an artistically imagined chapter from Jesus’ forty days of fasting and praying during his temptation experience in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil, also played by McGregor, over the fate of an ordinary family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test with distinctly human conflicts.
This exclusive premiere event will include “DVD extras” – the film, a taped Q&A with the Rodrigo Garcia and Ewan McGregor (facilitated by Christianity Today’s chief film critic, Alissa Wilkinson), and music by recording artist Michael Gungor all hosted by Mike McHargue from The Liturgists podcast.
