“An amazing piece of work. The film essentially follows one man, Jim White, as he deals with both his own and the South’s demons… and in the process we are given a musical tour of another planet. Beautiful dark and weird stuff.”

~David Byrne


Searching For the Wrong-Eyed Jesus is a captivating and compelling road trip through the creative spirit of the American South. ‘Alt’ Country singer Jim White takes his borrowed muscle car through a gritty terrain of churches, prisons, truck stops, juke joints, coal mines, swamps, and mountains. Along the way are roadside encounters with musical mavericks including the Handsome Family, Johnny Dowd, Melissa Swingle, David Eugene Edwards and David Johansen; old time banjo player Lee Sexton; Rockabilly and mountain Gospel churches — and novelist Harry Crews telling grisly stories down a dirt track.
