It might be fair to say that Jesus of Fayetteville was mentally unwell, but I'm not at all certain you can say that about the subject of Sean Tracey's outstanding directorial debut, the verite-style documentary feature The Jesus Guy, which will screen at 6 p.m. Saturday as part of the Ozark Foothills Filmfest. The screening will be held in Independence Hall at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville, and Tracey will be there to answer questions afterward.

Tracey's film is a throwback to the "direct cinema" style of legendary documentary makers David and Albert Maysles (Albert Maysles served as an adviser on the film), intimate with no narration, that puts us in the company of an enigma but leaves us to form our own opinions about it.
