The Catechism Cataclysm

Wednesday, October 19 - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Storytelling leads to trouble in this bizarre and funny tale.  Young priest Father Billy (Eastbound & Down‘s Steve Little) is forced to take a sabbatical for telling inappropriate parables to his flock.  He tracks down his high school idol Robbie, 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’re lost–and that’s when things get weird.
