R. Alverson Directs New Bonnie “Prince” Billy Video, New Jerusalem at SXSW

We are happy to announce following New Jerusalem‘s triumphant world premiere at Rotterdam Film Festival, R. Alverson’s second feature film starring Colm O’Leary and Will Oldham will make its North American debut at SXSW.

Alverson and co-star Will Oldham have just recently collaborated again for the video of Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang’s “New Wonder.” This song comes from the forthcoming 10″ Island Brothers aimed to benefit Edge Outreach’s efforts in Haiti.

“New Wonder” video directed by R. Alverson

The stunning video was seemingly filmed at a child’s wake, and like Alverson’s films, it is a slow-building and intimate look at an individual’s internal struggles and their devastating tangibility.

Filmmaker Magazine called New Jerusalem “a rare American indie film that dares to contend with spirituality and The Struggle For Meaning.”

If you plan on attending SXSW, check for the New Jerusalem screening dates below.
