Synopsis

Storytelling  in all its forms is skewered in THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM. In this divinely  bizarre and funny tale, wild characters infuse stories within stories until the
lines between the Bible, Mark Twain, and campfire tales are hilariously  blurred. Father Billy (Steve Little), an eccentric young priest, is forced to  take a sabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate  parables to his flock.  Billy tracks down his high-school idol Robbie (Robert Longstreet), who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip.  On the water, the two men  reminisce about Billy’s days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie’s  as a guitarist for a metal band.  When night approaches, they realize they have  lost their way–and that’s when things get weird.

Buoyed  by commanding comedic performances by Steve Little (EASTBOUND & DOWN) and  Robert Longstreet (GREAT WORLD OF SOUND), THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM shines a light
on the power of absurd fiction. On the heels of his festival hit THE GUATEMALAN  HANDSHAKE and preceding his just-wrapped comedy starring Johnny Knoxville and  Patton Oswalt, THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM is the latest from the unique comedic  sensibility of writer/director Todd Rohal, and is a production of Rough House  Pictures (David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, Jody Hill).
