The term "Born Again" is as polarizing in America today as it was 20 centuries ago when Jesus of Nazareth confided to a friend: "Truly. Truly. No one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again." The New Birth Portrait Series was created to explore and further articulate the meaning of his words through the lives of "New Yorkers." Each video portrait acts as a window into the new birth experience – an experience typically dismissed. Usually misunderstood. Right considered offensive. Even so, one's initial response does not normally demonstrate understanding. It did not for Jesus' friend who immediately retorts "How can a man be born when he is old? Surely, he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born! How can this be?"
