Pierced and Perfected is a 40 min short film adapted from a one-woman stage play, in which the elderly Mary recounts her experiences of the death, burial, and resurrection of her eldest son to the listening Luke, who is taking down her stories for the gospel he hasn’t yet written. When you watch this piece you’ll journey back with Mary to the night after the cross, witnessing her struggle with grief and her need for friends. You’ll see her embrace Jesus when he returns in the flesh and flood him with the deep questions, apologies, and desires that have been brewing inside her. You’ll probe into what her life might have looked like during his ministry and the challenge she likely faced to accept her own need for his redeeming work on the cross. You’ll witness Mary share her almost too-good-to-believe story with an old friend, and you’ll be inspired to remember and share your own. Most importantly, along with Mary, you’ll rediscover the hope that we have in Christ - a hope worth dying, sharing, and waiting for.
