Description: 'Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus' is a captivating and compelling road trip through the creative spirit of the South. 'Alt' Country singer Jim White takes his muscle car through a gritty terrain of churches, prisons, truck stops, biker bars and coalmines. This is a journey through a very real contemporary Southern America, a world of marginalized white people and their unique and intense homemade culture. Along the way are roadside encounters with present-day musical mavericks including the Handsome Family, Johnny Dowd, David Eugene Edwards and David Johansen; old time banjo player Lee Sexton; Rockabilly and mountain Gospel churches - and novelist Harry Crews telling grisly stories down a dirt track. Everybody has a story in some form, almost invariably of sudden death, sin or redemption - yet all transformed by the characteristic grim humor and natural eloquence of the Southern imagination. And all the while, a strange Southern Jesus looms in the background.
