2011 – directed by Rick Alverson – with Will Oldham, Colm O’Leary
An official selection of the SXSW and Rotterdam film festivals, NEW JERUSALEM stars Will Oldham (Bonnie “Prince” Billy) in his first leading role since Kelly Reichardtʼs OLD JOY and Colm O’Leary. This delicate drama from director Rick Alverson (THE COMEDY) follows Sean, an Irish immigrant to America returning from military service in Afghanistan. Finding his heart and mind in disarray, he befriends Ike, a strong willed Evangelical Christian, who endeavors to ensure the fragile Seanʼs salvation. A meditation on mutual need and frailty, NEW JERUSALEM explores the allure and limitations of modern utopian belief. The film was produced in association with prominent indie label Jagjaguwar (home to Bon Iver & Sharon Van Etten.)
