Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus



This off-beat tour will take you to the other side of the railroad tracks. Our host — a musician — shows you his homeland in the rural Deep South. He buys a used car, hauls a wrong-eyed Jesus statue in the trunk, and circles around trailer parks and BBQ joints listening to genuine contemporary musicians – and their many stories. Everyone has a story. The host has a story. It would be misguided to suggest this was a two-eyed look at poor white trash culture, but not too far off either. This film has great music, authentic characters, and an honest gaze. It’s an amusing trip.
