CGiii Comment

I saw Jesus on a banana!

Deftly tinged with humour and sprinkled with a sadness.

This is a gem of a film - an incredible journey in less than 11 minutes.

The(ir) Blurb...

When an elderly woman sees a vision of Jesus on the shorts of a young African man at her swimming class, she befriends him, believing he's been sent by God to free her from loneliness. 'Followers' is a dark comedy drama about faith and loneliness. The short film explores how the two intertwine and is based on Tim Marshall's feature screenplay of the same name.
