Daniel Kraus in person!

  1. PREACHER
  1. 2011, Daniel Kraus, USA, 73 min.

Chicago-based documentary director Kraus adds a new chapter in his ongoing Work Series (which includes SHERIFF, MUSICIAN, and PROFESSOR) with this warm profile of a self-taught Pentecostal preacher, Bishop William Nowell, the feisty, dapper, electric guitar-playing 72-year-old shepherd of a small working class flock in rural Virginia. Kraus’s laid-back method puts Nowell in the forefront, shaping the portrait through his own routine of counseling, gathering food for the poor, and ministering to one and all through the infectious sounds of gospel music.
