About:
The untold story of a once-popular but long-forgotten religious and civil rights leader.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In the early 1900s, an African-American man named Reverend MJ Divine began a religious movement that would reach over a million followers at its peak, crossing racial divisions and advocating for gender and economic equality. Despite his influence and achievements, Father Divine is little remembered today, dismissed by detractors as a con man and a fraud. The reason: Father Divine claimed to be God. Lenny Feinberg reveals his fascinating story, and that of his last few remaining followers, who are on a mission to keep Father Divine’s legacy alive.
