THE CRIME OF THE AGES
A DOCUMENTARY BY ROBERT ORLANDO
FACE TO FACE
The story told in a new way.
Robert Orlando claims that when we look through the lens of the Roman crucifixion, to find the “criminal Jesus”, we are coming face to face with the most transformative true crime story of Western history.
In a fresh approach, this documentary utilizes a New Testament and storyteller’s eye to examine the evidence behind the world’s most studied artifact and its connection to the historical Jesus. With new digital recreations, expert interviews, and the latest technology, the creators have reconstructed the actual crime scene surrounding Jesus’ crucifixion and present a mind-blowing fusion of faith and science for the first time.
Can the evidence behind the Shroud of Turin truly prove the story of Christ? From the bloodstain evidence we know the linen burial shroud did cover a man who suffered a brutal crucifixion, but we can also see details that go beyond a typical Roman form of execution to wounds particular to those suffered by Jesus as recorded in the gospel stories. The blood stained shroud indicates his crown of thorns, wounded side, the whip marks, and the presence of ferritin which proves extreme torment. This is actual blood with traces of hemoglobin, AB+ blood type, and a partial genetic profile, not artistic chemicals or dyes or paint. The film will also take you on a quest where you will see new scientific evidence being brought to light on radiological imagery. The evidence points to its authenticity not only as a burial shroud, but potentially the actual shroud of Jesus.
With the help of scientists and experts, Writer-Scholar-Filmmaker Orlando will reconstruct the narrative using forensic evidence to uncover whether the image on the Shroud could be the actual Jesus.

The Shroud film (TheShroudFilm.com) offers two classes of participation:
A class as Donor
B class as Equity Investor
The two classes work differently:
A class is for donation-only funds, and the Donor will receive a letter from The Nexus Institute, a 501c3 nonprofit organization (NexusInstituteSite.org), for its contribution, which we would use to pay for operating expenses and promotion of the film.
B class is for the Donors and Equity Investor, ownership in perpetuity of the project, accordingly to the percentage of investment. Our investment model offers a 3:1 ratio of donation to Investment.
For example, if a Donor-Investor would like to donate and invest 100k, 25k (or 25%) would go toward equity investment, and 75k toward donation.
We are looking to raise $1 million dollars, with an estimate of $250k toward film production, (crew, set design, equipment) and $750k toward promotional and time tested direct to consumer distribution efforts to take the product public for theatrical release and sales. (I have also included our estimated budgets and promo strategies at $250k, $500k and $750k)
The Shroud is offering:
Maximum $250k Investment and $750k in donation, and there would be a generous return on investment before sharing of profits 50/50 with the film’s producer.

“This is a compelling and convincing account of the single most fascinating relic in the Christian world. Anyone seeking to understand the significance and history of the Shroud of Turin should read this book.”
— MOST REVEREND ROBERT BARRON, BISHOP OF WINONA-ROCHESTER
The Shroud of Turin is the most mysterious and controversial Christian artifact that has survived. Could it be the burial shroud of Jesus? Or a medieval forgery, as some think? If so, why can’t modern science expose it? Robert Orlando’s book adds to the debate and sheds new light on this intriguing mystery.
