“You’ll walk on some water, we’ll get a few lepers in"
The Last Supper was a time of reflection, forgiveness and faith. It wasn't time for a PR strategy meeting...or was it?
In the lead-up to Easter, award-winning comedy duo Mid-Brow and director Alicia MacDonald of Missing Link Films have released their comedy short, "The Last Supper”, detailing what Peter, John and Jesus really discussed on the fateful night before his crucifixion.
The team behind Young Directors Award Gold-winning ”Bad News” have taken the most famous dinner in history and given it a comic twist.
