SYNOPSIS
Judas is perhaps the most complex character in the Gospels, the disciple-turned-betrayer — a man who walked with Jesus, only to later turn him in for thirty pieces of silver. Judas, covers the two years Judas spent with Jesus, years marked by political unrest as well as spiritual awakening.

The historical dramatization takes a unique look at an age-old story and provides a view into the heart and mind of Judas. It is the intimate story of a man who wants something from Jesus he cannot have, and who cannot accept what Jesus does offer.

Judas is the final project of the late Father Ellwood "Bud" Kieser, C.S.P. — founder of the Humanitas Prize and Paulist Productions.

Judas is executive-produced by multi-Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Tom Fontana, who also wrote the screenplay. Frank Desiderio, C.S.P., president of Paulist Productions and the Humanitas Prize, also serves as executive producer of the film. The film, under the Paulist Productions banner, is directed by Charles Robert Carner. Ann Wingate is the producer.
