The Terra Sancta Organ Festival is offering an experience that was common in the early days of cinematography, when films were silent and music was performed or improvised by a piano or organ to accompany the vision with a soundtrack: The Italian organist FAUSTO CAPORALI will accompany the screening of the film “THE KING OF KINGS” Protected content the American director Cecile DeMille with an improvised musical commentary on the organ.

This film is a masterpiece of film history and the American Film Institute has included it in its list of Top 10 Epic Films.
