The Redemption of General Butt Naked

Competition Documentary winner at BIFF 2011 has its TV debut tomorrow if you didn’t catch it at the festival. The Redemption of General Butt Naked is about a brutal Liberian warlord who reformed to become a Christian evangelist. BIFF jurors, Duncan Hall and Rose Kuo, said: “Directors Eric Strauss and Daniele Anastasion have made a compelling film about a charismatic and disturbing figure. The film stayed with us long after we viewed it. Whether you believe that a former rebel warlord turned evangelist who is responsible for 20,000 deaths and many more ruined lives, is capable or deserving of redemption – or indeed is sincere in his desire to apologise for the pain he has caused – The Redemption of General Butt Naked again proves that truth really is stranger than fiction.”
