SILHOUETTE CITY is an immersive journey through the recent history of American apocalypticism. Using archival video, movement propaganda and original investigative material, the film tracks the movement of right-wing apocalyptic style from the margins to the mainstream, into the military and beyond. In the midst of a steady loss of power on the political right and destabilizing economic crises, apocalyptic right-wing populism gathers force. Movement propaganda reaches massive audiences with great speed, across multiple platforms.

One of the most incisive and powerful examinations of the Religious Right’s gradual but decisive hold on political power in the United States…Seamlessly weaves the voices and analyses from prominent religious leaders, scholars, and practitioners, and makes its own subtle but persuasive argument about the nature of theo-politics in a post-9/11 world.
