Review

A feature documentary that seems at first to be telling a small, local story: we’re in woodland in Kentucky, where a man loading an assault rifle in preparation for some target practice explains how Donald Trump, he feels, spoke up for ordinary folk like him in a way that most politicians don’t. But he isn’t just a regular Republican voter. He’s an evangelical pastor whose calling in life is to raise money for Israel. Maya Zinshtein’s film soon leaves small church fundraisers behind to explore the global significance of US Christians who believe Israel is the key to the Second Coming, and how that partly explains Trump’s highly controversial relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem. It forms a spiky fable about what happens when politics and rigid religious dogma interact.
