The Mystery of the Nativity

A one-hour film that celebrates and delves into the mystery of the Nativity. Picking a handful of emblematic images as his focus, Waldemar Januszczak examines their elusive meanings and decodes their exciting symbolism. Although the focus is on a specific list of works, the themes, symbols and ideas in them have spread out into other works by other artists, which are also featured. The documentary as a whole adds up to a rousing and comprehensive tribute to one of art’s greatest themes and its central Christmas subject.
