The Bible, the oldest and most widely read book in the world. Millions and millions of children have grown up hearing and reading its stories, the impact of which can rarely be surpassed. Here is drama, here is compassion, here are fundamental truths.
Now, for the first time, the stories of the Old Testament, the first book of the Bible, have been brought to life in an animated television series, In The Beginning.
A rich variety of parables from the Old Testament has been illustrated and told in this series of 26 episodes in a way that everyone can understand. There is nothing dogmatic or moralistic about the series. The simple truths are depicted in an endearing way, so they can be enjoyed by people of any religious conviction. And while accurate historical and geographical details give the series an educational value, there is nothing dry or academic about it either: a lovable and entertaining central character – a little fox – appears in each story, to bring an element of fun and provide a narrator manque.
The 14th edition will be the first cross-media festival and go East with China as Guest Country!
