"About 4 years ago on a hot Atlanta day he was walking barefoot on a back road leading to a church & I had recognized him from a magazine I had looked at in the year 2000 so I was happy to turn around & start talking with him & asking questions....clearly he is special he told me to go to church every Sunday go to confession & have god in my life I asked him if he could come to my house & meet my Mom & bless my house & he agreed....& -I never pick up strangers!- my Mom doesn't speak English but that was no problem because he spoke fluent Spanish...he blessed me he blessed my mom & blessed my house it was so special I truly believe this man is special from god then I dropped him off at church & came back with my godmother so she can meet him & he blessed her too...then this Mexican guy who had been driving him around & staying with told me to tell him if he would accept money so he can use on his journey but the Jesus Guy got very upset & would not accept one dime he told me the Mexican was offending him...the guy was going to give him a lot of money too...this is how I know truly this guy is not a fake he is genuinely real & all he wants to do is get all of us close to our god & be blessed...I feel so lucky to have met him & will never forget! I hope he remembers me! He is a blessing from God & a great Man!!!

Some say he’s “a kook.” Others, “a blessing from God.” Barefoot and clad in a white robe, he’s walked through 47 states [and 13 countries] on a 16-year mission that’s captured media attention from 20/20, Time and the Wall Street Journal. Yet who is this solitary figure who inspires faith – and attracts controversy?
Sean Tracey traces the enigmatic odyssey of the anonymous, barefoot preacher known as “The Jesus Guy.” With the intimacy of single-camera filmmaking, we walk in his steps as he encounters both skeptics and believers, changing them…for better, for worse, forever.
"What at first glance looks like little more than a novelty piece turns out to be a challenging profile of a confounding individual...which is why it sticks so well." -Warren Curry Entertainment Insiders
“Make no mistake, the title subject of this film does not think he's Jesus. We see him praised, and we see him criticized. But most importantly, we see that he's human." -Jay Cheel Film Critic for the Documentary Blog
"Once you've seen The Jesus Guy in this film, he'll stay in your mind forever. Unforgettable. Absolutely Unforgettable." -Albert Maysles Awarded by the National Society of Film Critics, International Documentary Association and Sundance Film Festival for his documentaries
"This is an enthralling subject and story. The intimacy and authenticity of The Jesus Guy's cinematography is bewitching and refreshing. You feel like you're right there with this unusual man as his life is unfolding." -Bill Butler, ASC Academy Award and Emmy Winning Cinematographer of Jaws, Grease, Rocky I, II, & IV, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Biloxi Blues, and others
“It’s gotta be rough making a documentary on someone who refuses to give any personal details about himself…but when it is all said and done…you understand that he’s not a dangerous wacko.” -Eric Campos Contributing Editor for Film Threat
“It's both an ancient and a very modern tale -- a wandering evangelist comes to town and challenges local people with his words and his being. As with Robert Duvall's The Apostle, The Jesus Guy artfully takes us below the surface to explore what makes this charismatic preacher tick and why people react to him the way they do. Even non-religious viewers will be intrigued by these dramatic and intimate encounters.” -Fred Mogul W N Y C -- New York Public Radio Reporter and former TIME magazine reporter who wrote a feature article on The Jesus Guy
