The Church of the SubGenius has been called “the most aggressively preposterous theology the world has ever known!” But what is the Church? Filmmaker Sandy K. Boone explores the underground movement that has galvanized the imaginative, the artistic, the nerdy — even the deranged — to examine the simmering dystopia in their culture and do absolutely nothing about it, except, maybe, poke fun at it all.
Discussion led by the Rev. St. Brother Cleveland “Do-Nit” Duncan III, Esq., Jr. (aka Brother Cleve) to follow. W
