Jesus Was A Commie

 

Year: 2011
Country: USA
Run Time: 15 minutes

Jesus Was a Commie elegantly and intelligently captures an audience desperate to understand what is happening across our country. Using unambiguous language that openly presents two swamplands America is presently bogged down in: environmental degradation and partisanship. Actor Matthew Modine's words are as plain and simple as a parable from his film's title character. Jesus was a Commie is an avant-garde dialectical conversation about the world and the prominent issues of modern society. It recently won the Founders Prize for Best Short Film at Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival and is currently playing festivals worldwide.
