Carnival Messiah The Film & Documentary

Carnival Messiah The Film & Documentary

Carnival Messiah is a radical reinvention of George Fredrick Handel's Messiah; the theatrical production fuses together traditional and contemporary music, dance and carnival practices. The idea came from Geraldine Connor's desire to celebrate both her Caribbean and British roots. The traditional Christian story was reworked into a colourful masterpiece that celebrated art forms from around the world. Leeds-based director Ashley Karrell's film takes you closer to the action than ever before - huge cast, loud music, spectacular carnival costumes. Also featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from both then and now. Carnival Messiah The Film and Documentary has been created with thanks to Arts Council England Lottery Funding, Harewood House and Panoptical.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Ashley Karrell tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.

Superb! I rarely get to go to a movie with my older son after his siblings came along. We did manage to go to this movie in the cinemas. Not only were we glad we chose this movie to watch, but we still recall the impact this movie had on both of us.
