For 88 years, a small town has pantomimed the story of Christ in a unique construction of Jerusalem built into an Oklahoma Buffalo reserve. Alas, attendances are waning, and the man who plays Jesus is retiring, leaving organizers seeking a new saviour for this year’s performance. Enter Zack, a rotund twenty-something paperboy who has grown up in this devout Christian community, taking minor roles in past plays. This hybrid documentary chronicles a 300-strong amateur cast, a 6-hour production, and Zack, whose massive secret threatens to de-rail the entire show. With endearing characters, quirky humor, and stunning cinematography, Jesus Town USA documents a town grappling with questions of tradition, legacy, and what it means to be a community.
