I Am Joseph [Tomisin Adepeju, UK, 2019]


Michael Akinsulire as Joseph

I Am Joseph follows a carpenter named Joseph whose fiancée, Mary, has revealed that she is pregnant and that the father is God. The film establishes early on that it's the story of Christ, updated to a more modern context and told through the eyes of Joseph as he deals with this strange and unbelievable revelation.


Director Tomisin Adepeju’s approach to tell the well-known story from Joseph’s perspective is intriguing and Michael Akinsulire, who plays Joseph, is the highlight of this film, giving a conflicted and angry performance.
