THE MIRACLE MAKER is set to air on Easter Sunday at 7 pm screening on ABC. Set in 1st Century Israel, the story follows a sick young girl, Tamar (Rebbeca Callard), her Pharisee father Jairus (William Hurt), and her desperate mother Rachel (Julie Christie) as they encounter the charismatic preacher Jesus (Ralph Fiennes). Can Tamar be healed before those in authority strike against Jesus? THE MIRACLE MAKER was created by Christopher Grace of S4C following the success of SHAKESPEARE: THE ANIMATED TALES, TESTAMENT: THE BIBLE IN ANIMATION and THE CANTERBURY TALES. Making the film was an epic production lasting over 4 years -- a unique collaboration between award-winning animators and directors at Cartwn Cymru in Wales and Christmas Films in Moscow. The film was written by Murray Watts, executive directed by Derek Hayes, and is a mix of model, drawn and computer animation.
