Four8 has launched I AM MARY on their YouTube channel- the highly anticipated third film in their multi-award-winning “I AM” short film series, free for all to view exclusively on the company’s YouTube channel.
An emotionally gripping story for Christmas, at times shocking, at times tender and intimate, I AM MARY follows the arrival of a mysterious stranger at the house of a mother who has fled a hostile regime and is now living in exile with her young son. This dramatic but ultimately uplifting encounter gives her the chance to heal the wounds of a traumatic past and to accept the destiny that she and her son must face – to bring hope to a troubled world.
I AM MARY follows in the footsteps of Four8’s previous shorts in the trilogy – I AM JOSEPH and I AM PILATE – which reintroduce biblical characters in timeless settings, expanding on their individual journeys and providing audiences with the opportunity to connect with these human stories.
“We are excited to bring our first female led story to screen. This third film cements the I Am series as a trilogy and is truly a moving story of hope, motherhood and self-forgiveness.” – Stephané Alexandre, Producer Four8
I AM MARY is executive produced by BAFTA and Emmy award-winner Matthew Barrett (Horizon, Holocaust: The Revenge Plot, Hiroshima) and Vikki McLachlan, with cinematography by BAFTA-nominated Miles Ridgway.
