Few 8-year-olds can say they starred in a movie, much less one of the oldest stories of all time. Second-graders from the Beth HaTephila religious school in Asheville have created a film adaptation of the Moses story for their original film Moshe Rabeinu: The Life and Times of Moses the Prophet.
This slick, well-produced film was shot and directed by the school’s teachers, but the kids are the real stars. Wearing everything from fake beards to tunics, the kids share the intricacies of this classic Bible story in a way that will “appeal to all faiths,” according to Steve White, one of the film’s organizers.
The premier will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. at Beth HaTephila, 43 N Liberty St., and movie-themed snacks will be available. The screening is free, but donations are appreciated.
