When Moses, an undocumented immigrant, is being deported from the promised land…there’s only one friend he can turn to for a miracle. With a hilarious, trash-talking JesÃºs by his side, the two prophets try to stop the deportation – and stand up for the rights of all undocumented Americans.
Written and produced by Josh Healey and directed by Yvan Iturriaga, ‘Moses and JesÃºs’ stars comedy legends Richard Montoya (Culture Clash) and Corey Fischer (The Jewish Theater), and is produced by Favianna Rodriguez (Culture Strike). Half Cesar Chavez, half Saturday Night Live…the video is both incredibly funny and very powerful – and couldn’t come at a better time.
Released on the three-year anniversary of Arizona’s anti-immigrant SB 1070 going into effect, ‘Moses and JesÃºs’ is a comedic call to action for humane immigration reform – and full rights for the 11 million undocumented newcomers to the promised land.
