AMERICAN JESUS is an exploration of Christianity in every faction of American Life, from the breadline to the yoga studio, from the humble churches of snake handlers to the mega churches in the ex-urbs. Christian cowboys, bikers and musicians, comedians, surfers and cage-fighters, they are all doing it for Christ. Xavi Pratt & Aram Garriga travels from his native Barcelona to the politically divided United States to chronicle the sometimes bizarre relationship between faith, materialism, politics and personal passions in this uniquely American tableaux. Populated by an array of religious and secular characters offering candid, often illuminating testimonials, AMERICAN JESUS is a vivid mosaic of personalities and conflicting points of view that emerges as a portrait of an America yearning for solace and meaning in the modern world.
"American Jesus is an important documentary that will redefine how the world looks at America and how we Americans look at ourselves… with a strong level of intuitive intelligence. I’ve never seen before in a film on religion." –The Huffington Post
"AN AMAZING FILM....one of the best and most interesting documentaries on religion." –Todd Brown, Twitch
"Fascinating and informative...one of the best, if not, the best documentary on Christianity in the United States today, lift your arms in prayer and say "Hallelujah" for AMERICAN JESUS. –Debbie Lynn Elias, Movie Shark Deblore
"Garriga is the new Alexis de Tocqueville..."American Jesus" is to religion what de Tocqueville's "Democracy in America" (1835) was to our national life then: a revealing outsider's exploration of truths we Americans are too close to." –The Huffington Post
"REQUIRED VIEWING FOR EVERYONE." –Red Letter Christians
Welcome to the Army of Odd – How Unlikely Ideas Thrive, a study and celebration of several unlikely successes in various fields in documentary format -one-shot or serialized-. Its focus is on how some people see hidden value in situations where others do not and go for it - capturing widespread attention.
The main goal is to offer a love letter to contrarian entrepreneurship and fringe innovation- and to prove that sometimes following “the weirder, the better” mentality can lead to huge rewards, both individually and collectively. Come join the Army of Odd, it will be one hell of a ride.

With just a few months to live and nothing to loose, a bunch of old people with terminal illnesses make their own plans to impart what they see as true justice. Gathering in an abandoned factory turned medical facility, ironically known as The Palace, the self entitled “sickilantes” earn international notoriety as news of their actions spreads across the whole country like wildfire. Led by Dolly, a one hit wonder country singer in her 70s and Jed, a 65-year-old former marine, the group start a dangerous trend that will change the notion of justice forever and spark heated debate.
Check out what would happen if Fight Club took place in a retirement home.
