The Fatal Conflict - Judea and Rome
screenable online: 2 episodes
The two-part series, The Fatal Conflict — Judea and Rome, explores the tumultuous life of King Herod, and unpacks the glorious rise and tragic fall of Judea under the reign of the Roman Empire. Although 70 years apart, these two events are forever connected by one man who was charged with chronicling the events leading to Judea’s fall — the controversial historian Flavius Josephus.
This fascinating series provides a fresh perspective, using the words and deeds of this infamous Jewish acolyte and general, historian - and alleged traitor. Utilising a mixed media approach, it breathes life into the story of Jerusalem’s rise and fall. Expert interviews, dramatic recreations, animation, and stunning CGI weave a visual tapestry as rich as the story itself.
