Exodus

Synopsis
Penny Woolcock’s new film is a stunning vision of a future Britain re-imagining the Bible book of Exodus in Margate, and exploring themes of identity, migration, terrorism and the search for a promised land. Starring Bernard Hill as Pharoah Mann, a politician who sets up a ghetto to segregate immigrants and criminals from society, the story focuses on his adopted son Moses (Daniel Percival). Daniel enters the ghetto as a man and following a terrible act stays in the camp to lead the suppressed community to freedom and fight everything his father stands for. Exodus is the first feature film from Artangel, the organisation that commissions and produces projects by contemporary artists. In Exodus this collaboration between film and sculpture is fully and fantastically realised with the making and burning of Anthony Gormley’s Waste Man sculpture. DVD Extras: Making of Exodus. Waste man: 24 minute documentary by Caroline Deeds for Channel 4 on the making and burning of the Antony Gormley sculpture.
