Street Date: May 13, 2014 DVD srp: $19.98
Called "one of the best, if not, the best documentary on Christianity in the United States" (Movie Shark.com), American Jesus is an exploration of the religion in every faction of American life, from the bread line to the yoga studio, from the humble churches of snake handlers to the mega churches of the ex-urbs. Director Aram Garriga travels from his native Barcelona to the politically divided United States to chronicle the sometimes bizarre relationship between faith, materialism, politics and personal passions in this uniquely American tableaux.
Populated by an array of religious and secular characters offering candid, often illuminating testimonials - from Christian pop culture and music specialist, secular analysts, Apocalyptic preachers, Prosperity Pastors to Christian bikers, cage fighters, surfers comedians and cowboys -- American Jesus is a vivid mosaic of personalities and conflicting points of view that emerges as a portrait of an America yearning for solace and meaning in the modern world.
From acclaimed producer/filmmaker Larry Fessenden, American Jesus, had its world premiere at the Woodstock Film Festival, followed by its international premiere at the Sitges Film Festival. It makes its home entertainment debut on TDC Entertainment's Shelter Island label.
