Watch a clip from David & Goliath, an inspiring film by three Kerala priests
Three priests from Kerala decided to use cinema to uplift parishioners with an inspiring story during the pandemic. Frs James Thottiyil, 35, Jose Puthussery, 35, and Jacob Koroth, 44, of the Ernakulam-Angamaly Archdiocese got together and made a 14-minute short film inspired by how underprivileged children in Kerala were coping when their parents had to self-quarantine. David and Goliath (2021) is about siblings Thavi and Thanu, whose single mother has to self-quarantine after she comes in contact with a Covid-positive person. The story follows how the two children look after each other and care for her, coming up with clever ways to maintain a distance from her in their little house by the sea.
