SEARCHING FOR THE WRONG-EYED JESUS is a lyrical, unforgettable, music-driven journey through the bayous and bars, churches and prisons, demons and angels of the American South.
"Utterly fascinating... A travelogue unlike any other"
-David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor.
-Stephen Holden, New York Times.
Jim White, perhaps the most original musician in popular music since the advent of Tom Waits, is the film's unofficial guide to a world that's mysterious, repellent and beautiful.
With British director Andrew Douglas in the front seat and a 300 pound concrete Jesus in the trunk, White sets out in a broken down 1970 Chevy Impala to track down the essence of the white South, a place where snakes slither and Satan stalks, and where music provides the soundtrack for souls in celebration and in torment.
The film's soundtrack, " hands down the best of the year", includes such celebrated artists as The Handsome Family and David Johansson in addition to White.
