Synopsis

They call it God’s simple plan for salvation.

Explore the complex world of evangelical End Times belief and culture set against a backdrop of coastal devastation and apocalyptic fear.



In the years following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Director Holly Hardman focuses her lens on a fundamentalist cross-carrier, a fervent youth choir leader, and a fascinating collection of their born-again brethren along the Gulf Coast. All believe that God sent the hurricanes of 2005 to punish America for its sinful ways. And all share a desire to prepare themselves and the world for the End Times and the rapture.

The film enters corporate-style megachurches, backwoods tent revivals, and massive urban outreach rallies, as it accesses a world that is as much the American norm as it is alien, existing outside and in opposition to society-at-large.



Unnervingly authentic, Good People goes far in revealing the deep and often desperate reasons born-again believers have for embracing this American-made Christian faith. The result is a compelling film that deftly lays bare the paradoxical world of evangelical compassion, fear, love, and intolerance.
