Jesus Town

Canada, United States
2014 — 80' / Color



For 88 years, a small Oklahoma town has pantomimed a passion play on a bizarre reproduction of Jerusalem built into the Wichita foothills. ‘Jesus Town USA’ is a light-hearted and comedic documentary chronicling the journey of a 100-strong amateur cast, a dozen horses, and very devout community. Once boasting audiences of over 200,000. the Pageant now struggles to find any audience at all. With endearing characters, quirky humor, and stunning cinematography, ‘Jesus Town USA’ documents a town grappling with questions of tradition, legacy, and what it means to be a community.
