American Cinematheque presents a screening of The Catechism Cataclysm
, a Sundance 2011 Official Selection Award-winner, at the Aero. Skewing storytelling in all its forms, The Catechism Cataclysm
is a divinely bizarre and funny tale with wild characters infusing stories within stories until the lines between the Bible, Mark Twain and campfire tales are hilariously blurred. Father Billy (Eastbound and Down
's Steve Little), a young priest, is forced to take a sabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate parables to his flock. Billy tracks down his high school idol Robbie (Robert Longstreet), who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. On the water, the two men reminisce about Billy's days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie's as a guitarist for a metal band. When night approaches, they realize they have lost their way -- and that's when things get weird. Director Todd Rohal and actor Steve Little will be on hand for a post-screening discussion.
