Abraham is a 1993 television film based on the life of the Biblical patriarch Abraham produced by Five Mile River Films. It was shot in Ouarzazate, Morocco. Directed by Joseph Sargent, it stars Richard Harris, Barbara Hershey, Maximilian Schell, and Vittorio Gassman.
Abram lives in Harran, a rich city. His wife Sarai (Barbara Hershey) is childless, and their only heir is Eliezer of Damascus. One day he hears the voice of God, who says that he must leave Harran and travel to an unknown land. God promises to make a great nation from him and renames him Abraham and his wife Sarai as Sarah. The pattern for the plot is the Genesis chapters 11–25.
