Frameline42: Believer: Documentary Examines Sexuality & Faith
Born and raised in the Mormon faith, Dan Reynolds doesn't quite fit the mold of the rowdy, rebellious rock star. The young father of three and lead singer of the platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning alt-rock band Imagine Dragons is also not the most likely of activists for same-sex marriage and LGBTQ rights. But when the youth suicide rates in Utah start to spike dramatically, and lesbian friends of his wife, Aja Volkman (the lead singer of the indie rock group Nico Vega), are denied the right to marry, Reynolds begins to question the anti-LGBTQ tenets of the Church -- tenets he had long accepted as gospel and had been trained to proselytize as a young missionary. What starts as a journey of discovery becomes something of a crisis of faith as Reynolds comes to recognize the harm and pain the Church is causing for thousands of LGBTQ Mormons. An audience hit at Sundance, documentarian Don Argott's Believer now hits the big screen at The Castro Theatre in San Francisco.
