The Gospel of Us is a 2012 Welsh drama based on the Owen Sheers novel of the same name and the three-day Passion play that Michael Sheen acted in in his home town of Port Talbot in April 2011. Directed by Dave McKean, the film stars Sheen as The Teacher, a man who has lost all memory of who he is and of the danger his town is facing from a company, ICU.
A group of people are filming a home movie on the beach when they are interrupted by two men in the background. The Stranger (Nigel Barrett) becomes violent towards The Teacher (Michael Sheen) and chases him away. He then runs towards the camera and grabs it, screaming, 'Forty days!' into it.
A young girl watches a news broadcast where a woman (Di Botcher) is showing photographs of her missing son, The Teacher. On the beach at dawn, people gather at the water's edge. The Stranger walks into the water and waits there. From the sand dunes The Teacher, dressed in bedraggled clothing, appears and walks the to water. He removes his clothes and walks into the sea towards The Stranger, who pushes him under the water. When The Teacher emerges, he cries and is carried to shore where he is wrapped in a cloth and carried away while the people sing, 'He is come.'
This project is the film version of the Passion play that was performed throughout Port Talbot in Easter 2011.
