See this film: The Redemption Of General Butt Naked

Of all the murderous thugs who ravaged Liberia during its civil war, Joshua Milton Blahyi may have been the most feared. He and his army were notorious for ripping their clothes off, running amok, and killing indiscriminately. Blahyi lay low when the war was over until reappearing in a new guise: evangelical preacher. Eric Strauss and Danielle Anastasion's brilliant documentary The Redemption Of General Butt Naked records this astonishing story with detachment and uncompromising detail, suggesting that the General's two roles are not as contradictory as they might first appear. The two filmmakers will appear in person when it screens at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Monday, August 8 @ 8 pm | $10; $8 students, seniors | 617.876.6837 or brattlefilm.org
