Synopsis

The Redemption of General Butt Naked follows Joshua Milton Blahyi - aka General Butt Naked - a brutal African warlord who has renounced his violent past and reinvented himself as a Christian evangelist.  Today, Blahyi travels the nation of Liberia as a preacher, seeking out those he once victimized in search of an uncertain forgiveness.  Filmmakers Eric Strauss and Daniele Anastasion track his often troubling path up-close, finding both the genuine and disconcerting in Blahyi’s efforts, raising questions about the limits of faith and forgiveness in the absence of justice.
