About Salvation!

Exploding out of the Super 8 movement of the New York’s ‘80s scene, Beth B.’s first solo feature is a fervent satire on the televangelism that crept across American TV screens through the ‘70s and ‘80s. With televangelist scandals fresh in the audience’s minds at the time, the time was ripe for a rock ‘n’ roll comedy aimed directly at the hypocritical peacocking of TV preachers.

Salvation! follows devoutly religious Rhonda Stample (Exene Cervenka, singer of LA punk band X), her devoutly not-religious husband Jerome (a young Viggo Mortensen), and his beautiful, seductive sister Lenore (Dominique Davalos) as the trio get mixed up in a web of blackmail and sex with repressed televangelist Rev. Randall (Stephen McHattie). Naturally, things only get crazier from there.

The screening will be preceded by a live onstage introduction from Dr Sabina Stent.
