Reverend Huie Rogers is a preacher at the Bible Way Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Brooklyn. He is the topic of this short film, during which launches into an epic call-and-response denunciation of human hubris, greed, corruption and failure. The use of lengthy shots present it less like a sermon and more a performance, and induce an almost trance-like state.
Questions occasionally turn up in the mind about those deeply buried stories that nobody was clear about. Can 8 young people find the real answer? What is the tree of knowledge and the forbidden fruit? Why did God make the fruit and let people pick it and eat it? It is Jesus who suffered for their sins, was resurrected and be-came the way of truth and a virtuous life itself. If people followed the way of Jesus, they would be resurrected and be unified with God and get into Heaven. But the reality is that the human world and God’s world are separated.
Tunnel of Love is a feature length concert documentary about the intersection of identity, belonging and creativity. It's a look at the transformative power of live music, both on the audience and the performer. It's a love letter to the sonic potential of natural acoustics. And it's a playful narrative about two lovers in the process of changing their pronouns. Through live performances, unexpected creative moments of conception and behind the scenes storytelling, the film takes you on a heartfelt journey about what it means to be an artist, a romantic and an opportunist.
An experimental documentary on Reverend L.O. Taylor, a Black Baptist minister from Memphis, Tennessee who was also an inspired filmmaker with an overwhelming interest in preserving the social and cultural fabric of his own community in the 1930′ s and ‘ 40’ s . I combine his films and music recordings with my own images of Memphis neighborhoods and religious gatherings, 1989 .
The film consists of Bert Swor in black-face pretending to be a black preacher.
