BUT THE HOUR IS NEAR
DOCUMENTARY | 35MM | 90 MINUTES | 2004
On the streets of Riga, Eriks and Daniels preach both the Gospel and their version of a modern Christian lifestyle. Although friends, they hold opposing views of life – that of an extreme materialist and extreme idealist. Their story unfolds against the background of the emergence of charismatic new sects, determined to corner the religious market. A grotesque story from real life about ordinary people who try to embrace fanatical faith in the face of temptations and demands of everyday life.
