JESUS, YOU KNOW
Best Documentary Karlovy Vary Film Fest
"Engrossing" -Chicago Reader
"Tells the truth where it counts most: in its unblinking exploration of one of the most private of human experiences." -The New York Times
"This might be the most fun you've ever had in church."
" Often fascinating!" -Chicago Tribune
"I didn't want to show the hypocrisy or the stiffness of the Catholic Church: neither the ceremonial, nor the bigotry of authoritative conservatism; and not the kitsch either. What interested me was the intimacy of the people praying to God." -Ulrich Seidl
In this powerful, simply constructed documentary by Ulrich Seidl (Animal Love, Dog Days), six devout un-named Christian worshippers allow the camera to record their frequent prayers, revealing all in sometimes funny, often almost unbearably intimate, one-way conversations.
Directed by Ulrich Seidl, Austria, 2003, 35mm, 87 mins. In German with English subtitles.
