Salvation! Have You Said Your Prayers Today? 1987. USA. Directed by Beth B. Screenplay by Beth B and Tom Robinson. With Steven McHattie, Dominique Davalos, Viggo Mortensen, Exene Cervenka. In English. 80 min.
This parody of televangelism (released just after the real-life scandals of evangelists Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart) stars a young Viggo Mortenson, Exene Cervenka (from the band X), Stephen McHattie, and Dominique Davalos (from the band Dominatrix). Salvation! is a fascinating time capsule of the 1980s with a wonderful soundtrack comprised of songs by Cabaret Voltaire, Arthur Baker, New Order, and others.
The September 14 screening of Salvation! will be preceded by the New York City premiere of Beth B's latest short film, Glowing Woman.
Glowing Woman. 2022. USA. Directed by Beth B. 15 min.
