A STORY OF APOCALYPTIC PROPORTIONS: The Custom Mary
NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD, DIGITAL DOWNLOAD & VOD
LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2013 - From Director Matt Dunnerstick comes an award-winning tale of love, lowriders and the cloning of Christ, The Custom Mary available now on DVD, Digital Download and VOD from H770 Films.
This different kind of L.A. story features newcomers Alicia Marie Sixtos (The Avengers, Quinceanera) as a benevolent young Mary navigating her way in a dream-like state through this modern age, and James Jolly (The Scenesters) as Joe, who reluctantly supports her on a tumultuous journey of piety and doubt.
This counter-culture romance seamlessly blends fantastical allegory and philosophical musings with the harsh reality of how many Americans live today. Featuring breath-taking cinematography and surreal characters, The Custom Mary is a must-have DVD for anyone who has ever wrestled with their faith and come out on the other side.
Searching for purpose and meaning in the world, a young Latina in East Los Angeles becomes dangerously involved with a storefront church where a young minister enthrals her. At the same time, she meets Joe, a self-empowered African-American lowrider mechanic.
Mary, struggling to reconcile her faith and her blossoming love affair with Joe, is pulled into a group from the church who believes they can clone Jesus, with Mary's help. Mary becomes pregnant, and as the day of birth approaches, both Joe and the preachers fight for her attention. Battling real and imagined truths, Mary begins a secret journey to the desert, seeking answers in a surprising and surreal way.
The Custom Mary is a fascinating combination of a classic, indie love story and an exploration of faith and fanaticism, set amidst the gritty urban world of lowrider culture.
The Custom Mary is currently available on DVD at Amazon.com and exclusively in Walmart stores nationwide, as well as available for purchase digitally on iTunes, Amazon Instant, VUDU, Google Play, YouTube and Hulu, as well as on VOD from Direct TV, Dish Network, Avail-TVN, Charter, Verizon Fios TV and AT&T Uverse.
