Director Biography - Hunter J. Truman

Hunter J. Truman is a Los Angeles based filmmaker exploring themes of failure, isolation, redemption, and comic absurdity in his subjects. A friend best described his work as “degenerate, oddly life-affirming romps through dark subject matter.” A recent graduate of Florida State University’s College of Motion Picture Arts, Hunter also works as a freelance gaffer and production assistant.

Director Statement

Vengeance of the Christ reimagines the Prince of Heaven as a washed-up action hero, living in the shadow of his vein and disapproving father. The traditional biblical story of Christ’s crucifixion is not his greatest triumph, rather his darkest hour. Sent by the almighty King God to rule an earthly world that had spiraled into evil, Jesus could only manage a few miracles and a sermon on a hill before he got himself killed. The Son of God returned to the Pearly Gates expecting a Hero’s Welcome, only to be cast out of his father’s kingdom and forced to wander the afterlife for millennia as a rogue warrior.
This is the perverse and borderline blasphemous backstory in which my story and characters are framed. Arrogant, alcoholic, and sexually suppressed, what drew me to this leather-clad, loose canon of a Jesus were the flaws, fear, and vulnerabilities that made him terribly, unpredictably, and hilariously human.
