American Mystic

Showing at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month: American Mystic, directed by Alex Mar

I would just like to take a moment to thank the Tribeca Film Festival for including this list of movies directed by women, so I don't have to Google Image Search every unfamiliar name. Thanks!

Synopsis from the TFF website:

Set against a vivid backdrop of American rural landscapes, Alex Mar's meditative documentary artfully weaves together the stories of three young Americans exploring alternative religion: a pagan priestess in California mining country, a Spiritualist in upstate New York, and a Native American father and sundancer in South Dakota, all yearning for fulfilling spirituality in disparate but often strikingly similar ways.

No trailer up as yet, but here is an interview with Alex Mar about making the film.
