Music-Comedy ELECTRIC JESUS is available today, November 2, through all major digital streaming platforms. This faith-based film is a coming-of-age rock-and-roll comedy, following the ill-fated exploits of a religious hair metal band during the summer of 1986.
The film stars The Office's Brian Baumgartner as the band's woebegone road manager, 80's teen icon Judd Nelson as a firebrand preacher, and newcomers Andrew Eakle, Shannon Hutchinson, and Wyatt Lenhart as devout teens determined to "make Jesus famous." The project was written and directed by Chris White (UNBECOMING, GET BETTER).
Here's a synopsis of the movie: "When a flashy promoter (Brian Baumgartner) sells sound man Erik (Andrew Eakle) and his favorite local Christian hair metal band, 316, on the promise of a bus tour in the summer of 1986, their desire to "make Jesus famous" meets the complexities and confusion of personal ambition, religious conviction, youthful zeal, lifelong friendships, and first love. "
ELECTRIC JESUS has been making waves in the U.S. film festival circuit, winning numerous awards and converting hundreds of devotees. It is a stunning breakout from writer-director Chris White, who co-produced the film with his wife Emily Reach White and co-wrote the film's original songs with alt-rock musician Daniel Smith.Mining his own experiences as an Evangelical teenager, White pushes past the hoary cliches of both music and faith-based genres, delivering a film that resists sentimentality, preferring to lean hard into the awkward, strange , and sometimes wonderful world of youthful devotion to cause.
