Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Andrew Douglas
Documentary • 84 minutes • USA

Searching for The Wrong-Eyed Jesus is a captivating and compelling road trip through the creative spirit of the South. Director Andrew Douglas’s film follows “Alt” Country singer through a gritty terrain of churches, prisons, truckstops, biker bars and coalmines. This journey takes you through a very real contemporary Southern America, a world of marginalized white people and their unique and homemade culture. Along the way are roadside encounters with present-day musical mavericks including The Handsome Family, Johnny Dowd, 16 Horsepower and David Johansen, old-time banjo player Lee sexton, rockabilly and mountain Gospel churches - and novelist Harry Crews telling grisly stories down a dirt track. This documentary plays with the short documentary Fragile Machine.
