Cool old movie theatres in Michigan are into Inni. Following a great show at Grand Rapids’ Wealthy Theatre this past weekend, on December 5th Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater – a beautiful old cave that has this cool old organ – and Traverse City’s State Theatre both screen the film.
“You got to think ridiculous when it comes to Christ,” insists the title modern-epoch apostle in Preacher, a documentary by Daniel Kraus about 72-year-old Bishop William Nowell, a charismatic, excitable and enthusiastic longtime Pentecostal pastor who gets more exercise at the pulpit than many people get at a treadmill or track.
Preacher screens at the Brooks Museum in Memphis tonight. The screening is loosely associated with professional Renaissance Man Scott Newstok’s “1611 Symposium” at Rhodes College, and across Memphis, celebrating the King James Bible’s 400th anniversary.
The beautiful and haunting film The Afterlight is coming up on DVD shortly, and we couldn’t be more proud. The film’s stars include the lovely Ana Asensio, whom you probably recognize from Zenith, and a performance by the amazing Rip Torn, whom you recognize from… well, everywhere.
To celebrate, check out this powerful song from composer Nathan Matthew David.
