BLASPHEMY

A woman is forced to question her belief system when she learns her husband has done the unthinkable.

Director’s Statement

Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he replied.
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
-Genesis 22

What if we’ve been telling the story wrong for 3000 years?

BLASPHEMY is a re-imagining of the classic bible story of Abraham, this time from Abraham’s wife Sarah’s perspective. As a storyteller I enjoy exploring complex women and power dynamics. This film can be interpreted as a cat and mouse game between a husband and wife, or as a broader allegory on trust, marriage and blind faith.
