A film by Martin Meissonnier, in collaboration with Roger Trilling
Since September 11, 2001, the world has discovered that President George W. Bush belongs to the evangelical Christian movement. He has never hidden this from his fellow Christians, most of whom identify strongly with his words and deeds.
These Christians, whose numbers are impossible to evaluate accurately because the dividing lines between fundamentalists and moralists are so vague, are missionaries by tradition and all equal before God. They use modern communication techniques to bring the Good Book into people’s homes and hearts. Yet, in the last thirty years, Christian Evangelicals have drifted into more reactionary waters. Many become fundamentalists. Be they Baptists, Adventists, Pentecostalists, conservative and proud of it, low-key or fanatic, who are they and what do they want ? On the eve of the US presidential election, this film goes in search of these missionary electors from the world’s most powerful country.
