Artist Javier Krahe has been charged with blasphemy after his art film How To Cook Jesus Christ was shown on television in Spain. Krahe directed the short film with Enrique Sesena in 1978, and it was immediately banned. It was broadcast on the Canal+ TV show Lo + Plus in 2004, and the show's producers are also facing blasphemy charges. The film's original title is 10 Comentarios: Sobre La Cristofagia, though it is more commonly known as Como Cocinar Un Cristo (How To Cook Jesus Christ).
