In the Garden of Eden, Adam partakes of the forbidden fruit because he cannot bear to live without Eve, his love. Cast out of paradise by a wrathful God, the pair looks to beautiful Lucifer to fulfill his promise and grant them the secret knowledge of the trees. So begins THE ANNUNICATION, Andras Jeles' stunning epic account of the dark history of humanity as portrayed entirely by children between 8 and 12 years of age.

Photographed against the breathtaking fields, forests, steppes and shores of southern Hungary, THE ANNUNCIATION sends 12-year-old, dark-haired Adam on an odyssey through time and space. He becomes a general in Athens, presiding over the trial of a traitorous soldier. He is a crusader in Byzantium in old Prague, Danton during the French Revolution, and a witness to plague and poverty on London. As guided by a deceptively sweet, ultimately contemptuous blond-haired Lucifer, Adam confronts an endless procession of betrayal and savagery, rapists and concubines, mindless cruelty and fanaticism.

Superbly photographed, colorfully costumed and stunningly acted, THE ANNUNCIATION makes Pasolini-like use of its youthful cast to illustrate the horror and irrationality of our times."Sensual and darkly spirited! An exquisite indictment of mankind's folly!" - Cineast Magazin. "A remarkable achievement!" A haunting epic fantasy!" - Coutre Magazine.
