The Passion of Christ is a moving story and greatest love story ever told, but Joe Castillo deepens the experience with his performance of creating one illustration after another with sand on a light table. With a swipe of his hands he creates a setting, filling in the details with deft fingers.
The lighting adds to the shadowy light display that reveals spectacularly detailed portraits of a woman praying, Jesus on the cross and more. Completing one picture, he rakes his fingers over the picture and begins to build another detailed, moving picture of the passion story. The background music beats to the confident movement of his hands and fingers, adding drama and evoking deep emotion in the viewer.
