In a small village in West Africa, a pig-herd decides to save his people after nearly drowning, presenting himself as the cousin of Christ. Somewhat crazy and a bit of a thief, he rules as master and pushes his convictions to the limit, going as far as having himself crucified like Christ.
A classic of African cinema, Ivory Coast filmmaker Roger Gnoan M’Bala came to international attention for this enticing, subversive social satire. Scathing in its comedy, In the Name of Christ takes aim at the theatre and—even more ambitiously—the colonial enterprise of religion in West Africa.
