Dust on the Bible
On the street corners, in the tabernacles, at the cattle fairs, the people of Ulster are warned by pastors and preachers about the end of days. Encounter Belfast’s very own manic street preachers in this powerful documentary.
A lyrical, visual poem about these latter day prophets. Focusing on Belfast’s charismatic street preachers the film traces the journey of a lonesome drifterseeking salvation in the gospel halls of this ‘troubled godforsaken place’.
The work of one of Northern Ireland’s most distinctive filmmakers, Dust on The Bible reflects John T. Davis experiences in America’s ‘Bible-Belt’, drawing parallels between fundamentalist religion in the US and his home country.
