The Acts of Paul and Thecla!

For the past month or so, I’ve been working on a piece commissioned by the Tanho Center based on The Acts of Paul and Thecla, an early Christian text that wasn’t included in the Bible. The Tanho Center is pretty awesome. From their website:

The Tanho Center is dedicated to the exploration of the many discoveries of texts from the earliest Christ movements. By incorporating recently discovered texts into contemporary practices, we hope to signify exactly what tanho means in Coptic: “to make or be alive.”

Check out their website and Facebook page here. Their October launch is happening on the 20th, and I am flying out to Boulder with my filmmaking partner John Rogers to both debut our film, “Meet Thecla”, and present a workshop on the role visual media can play in exploring these ancient texts. Needless to say, I am super excited about this opportunity.

Below are some screenshots from from my work on the film.
