Based on the Nobel Prize® winning novel by Pär Lagerkvist, BARABBAS is a four hour event miniseries that explores the epic story of the ultimate biblical sinner. Barabbas, the great robber, brigand and freedom-fighter is compelled to ponder the meaning of redemption for the rest of his life after he is spared from crucifixion when Pilate manipulates the crowd into pardoning him, rather than Jesus Christ. Struggling with his spirituality after his wife Esther is brutally murdered for being a follower of Jesus, Barabbas goes through many ordeals that lead him to the gladiatorial arena, where he wins his freedom and confronts his inner demons, lastly becoming a believer and follower of the man who was crucified in his place.

Shot on location in Tunisia, this epic primetime television event picks up where the Bible left off. BARABBAS embodies the duality of good and evil in human nature, a rousing action spectacle telling delicately the unbelievable story how Christianity was able to rise from such humble beginnings to the force that it became.

For BARABBAS, Pär Lagerkvist was awarded The Nobel Prize® in Literature 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavours in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". The novel has been translated into more than 30 languages.

BARABBAS is produced for ReelzChannel in the USA, RAI and France 3.

 

Available as 2 x 90 min, or 3 x  45 min + 68 min miniseries and as 1 x 100 min feature.
