MATCH CUTS PRESENTS: ALEX MAR'S AMERICAN MYSTIC
DIRECTOR ALEX MAR IN ATTENDANCE

Spectacle Theater is excited to collaborate with critical platform Match Cuts on a new series of screenings.  Scroll down for more information on Match Cuts.

"Set against the rich, color-soaked backdrop of Americas rural landscapes, Alex Mars lyrical documentary braids together the stories of three young Americans who have chosen to sacrifice comforts in order to embrace the fringes of alternative religion. The subjects include Chuck, a Lakota Sioux sundancer in the badlands of South Dakota; Morpheus, a Pagan priestess living off the grid in northern Californias old mining country; and Kublai, a Spiritualist medium in the former revivalist district of upstate New York.

In the radical, separatist spirit of early America, each has extracted themselves from the mainstream in order to live immersed in their faith and to seize a different way of life. Mar takes a personal, visually lush approach, enveloping the viewer in the subjects experience of their controversial faiths through their own words, their rituals, and the sprawling, majestic imagery that makes up each of their worlds.

The movie was directed by Alex Mar, produced by Mar and Nicholas Shumaker, and edited by Andy Grieve (Errol Morriss Standard Operating Procedure, Alex Gibneys Going Clear). It features cinematography by Gregory Mitnick and a score by composer Nathan Larson (formerly of the band Shudder to Think)."
