Story


Storytelling in all its forms is skewered in Todd Rohal's hilarious "The Catechism Cataclysm". A favorite of Sundance, SXSW and BAMcinemafest 2011, this divinely bizarre and funny tale infuses stories within stories with wild characters until lines between Biblical tales, Mark Twain, and campfire stories are hysterically blurred. From producers Jody Hill, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, "The Catechism Cataclysm" tells the tale of Father Billy (Steve Little, "Eastbound & Down"), an eccentric young priest who tracks down his high school idol Robbie, an ex Heavy Metal rocker (Robert Longstreet, "Pineapple Express") who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. As they embark on their journey, it slowly becomes clear that the two old friends might not be as close as Father Billy remembers. When night approaches, and they realize they have lost their way - that's when things get weird.

“..a certain deadpan comedic realism to be found here..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..it's certainly not committed to the idea of showing how words can make vivid images come to life..”
by Simon Abrams [Slant Magazine]
