Who Can He Be?

Streaming and DVD options now available!

This is the latest film by director David Rolfe, who returns to the subject of the Turin Shroud, which was the focus of his 1978 BAFTA award winning documentary, The Silent Witness. In the years since then, the reputation of this revered Christian relic has been severly damaged by the result of a radiocarbon dating test in 1988, which delivered the verdict that the Shroud was a medieval forgery dating from the period 1260 to 1390 AD. However, there is a catalogue of less well-publicised scientific and historical evidence that contradicts this claim. Who Can He Be? outlines several reasons why the result of the controversial C-14 test should not be trusted and profiles some of the remarkable scientific research which has led many to the conclusion that this sacred cloth was the burial shroud of Jesus Christ.

An Evening to Remember

"Our parish community was tremendously blessed as we gathered to view a special screening of Who Can He Be? We had over 100 attendees and the conclusion of the film was met with enthusiastic applause. As the humble organizer, I was surprised at how many people approached me afterwards to say, “thank you,” and express sentiments of appreciation for the faith-affirming message this film brings. I continue to receive positive feedback and questions from viewers like, “This is fantastic! Why haven’t we heard this before?” and “We need to let people know about this!” Indeed we do. I would heartily encourage church congregations all over the world, no matter what denomination, to view and promote Mr. Rolfe’s new film, Who Can He Be?"

"In the beginning was The Word…and The Word was made flesh".

Hollywood spends millions spreading the word about their films. Alas, we cannot afford to do that. If you enjoy the film please spread "The Word" about it to all your friends who might like to see it and even, perhaps, to those for whom it may all be something of a surprise.”
