Sydney Film Festival Interview: Jesus

Jesus is a new Japanese comedy screening at the Sydney Film Festival.

It’s about a young boy who moves to a new town with his family and is introduced to Christianity when he’s enrolled in a Catholic school.

He soon discovers Jesus – or his version of him – as a tiny imaginary friend who helps him find his place.

Chris Evans from 2SER’s Film Fight Club spoke to the director, Hiroshi Okuyama, who spoke through an interpreter, and Australian born Japanese comedian Chad Mullane, who plays Jesus.

Jesus screens tonight and tomorrow at Sydney Film Festival. Head to for tickets and further details.
