A Blood Throne (2018)
“A Blood Throne” is a short film [38 minutes] that focuses on the dysfunctional relationship between father and son, Herod the Great and Antipas, at the height of Herod’s delusion: the massacre of the innocents and the murder of his two eldest sons. By exposing the corruption that comes with the unyielding pursuit for control, fame, and power, “A Blood Throne” illustrates the mental, physical, and spiritual deterioration of Herod as a father, husband, and king. Ultimately, we are left with a glimmer of hope – the miraculous birth and escape of the prophesied King of Kings: Jesus, the anointed Messiah. A child being raised up by a righteous father.
