IFC Midnight Canoe Out Towards ‘The Catechism Cataclysm’

IFC Midnight have picked up the rights to Todd Rohal’s sophomore film – perhaps the best “titled” film presented at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The Catechism Cataclysm (a comedy with horror elements) premiered in the Park City at Midnight section and will be presented at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival.

Gist: Father Billy (Steve Little), an eccentric young priest, is forced to take a sabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate parables to his flock. Billy tracks down his high-school idol Robbie (Robert Longstreet), 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 have lost their way–and that’s when things get weird.

Worth Noting: A must see is Rohal’s award-winning debut The Guatemalan Handshake, (I’ve included the trailer below) which is available on DVD via Benten Films.
