The debut feature from award-winning writer/director Kirk Davis, "Screen Door Jesus," is a wry, comedic observation of religion, race and the "damnable" struggle between the ideals of faith and the confusing and often contradictory moral issues of everyday life. As entertaining as it is thought provoking, Screen Door Jesus shines a light on religion, exposing the many grey areas. The central thread of this unusual story involves a vision of Jesus sighted on the screen door of Mother Harper's (Cynthia Dorn) front porch. The misadventures begin as the media and crowds gather around the phenomenon and the townsfolk start to take sides. As more people flock to the door, some for guidance, some for healing and some for pure entertainment, the pressure on this sleepy town starts to build. From the wanton Mayor to the scheming town seductress; from the white banker to the desperate black rough neck who seeks his help; from the security guard with all the answers to the hoards gathering with nothing but questions, there’s something boiling under this town and only one thing is certain: no one will escape the apocalyptic results unchanged...
