They say it's God's simple plan for salvation...
Explore an American sub-culture that believes the end of the world is at hand.
In the years following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, filmmaker Holly Hardman focuses her lens on a fundamentalist cross-carrier, a fervent youth choir leader, and a fascinating collection of their born-again brethren along the Gulf Coast. All believe that God sent the catastrophic hurricanes of 2005 to punish America for its sinful ways. And all share a desire to prepare themselves and the world for the End Times and the rapture.
The film enters corporate-style megachurches, backwoods tent revivals, and massive urban outreach rallies, capturing the breadth of the evangelical world, while focusing on one family’s moving saga of faith and conflict.
Good People Go to Hell, Saved People Go to Heaven goes far in revealing the deep and often desperate reasons born-again believers have for embracing this American-made Christian faith. The result is a compelling film that deftly lays bare the paradoxical world of evangelical compassion, fear, love, and intolerance.
