Over 175 people have backed Mormon Movie on Kickstarter, and over 1,400 have watched the "first look" work-in-progress. But we only have 7 days left to reach our fundraising goal on Kickstarter. Your support will allow us to add much-needed perspectives and voices to the film, rent gear, hire crew, write grants, get us shooting with collaborators and subjects in Utah, Mexico, and beyond - building out the film's first rough-cut and keeping us active!
Help us keep going! We cannot move forward with this film until funds are raised. Please make a donation today on Kickstarter.
Xan Aranda's film revisits her ancestral religion (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) through the lens of two Mormon classics: a black-and-white Western portraying an historic clash between colonists and Pancho Villa in Mexico, and a jewel-toned yet tragic cautionary tale about marriage and doubt. As deeper threads of LDS beliefs are revealed, Xan explores the controversially clean-cut community she left behind – and her family’s spiritual fate beyond death.
