Costume designer Antoinette Messam takes us on a journey through the costumes for “The Book of Clarence”; a journey through ancient Jerusalem with an anachronistic approach by director J. Samuel.
Discover how the costume team has managed to fuse styles to create looks that capture the essence of the Bible with a contemporary twist.
The film is a visual experience that will captivate film and series costume designers and costume makers with its originality and creativity. The music (score by J. Samuel and musical supervision by Peter Afterman) booms in the background, giving this divine setting a hip-hop feel. A bold approach that will not go unnoticed.
We are grateful to have been part of this project. The Book of Clarence had its world premiere at the 67th BFI London Film Festival on 11 October 2023, and was released by TriStar Pictures in the US on 12 January 2024 to generally favourable reviews.
