Movie Info

A Pentecostal minister with no experience as a filmmaker receives a divine vision instructing him to shoot an epic science fiction film based on the biblical tale of Joseph, and documentary filmmaker Michael Jacobs follows every step of the tumultuous film production that follows. As tension on the set rises and the production experiences a series of disheartening setbacks, Jacobs catches charismatic minister-turned-director Richard Gazowsky and his loyal flock as they strive to see their vision reach the silver screen. Set to be shot on 70 mm film and described by the ambitious director as "Star Wars meets The Ten Commandments," "Gravity: The Shadow of Joseph" aspires to truly biblical proportions. Now, as the impressive but inexperienced cast and crew travels to Italy and prepares to shoot their epic on state-of-the-art film equipment, the production hits an unforeseen hitch as the 100 million dollars promised to them by German investors fails to materialize. With rumors of Satan's mischief soon being whispered among the members of the congregation/crew, the pastor remains resolute in his vision and determined to conquer any and all obstacles that stand in their way.

Somewhere above us, God is watching Audience of One and chuckling. Mere mortals will be doing likewise.

Audience of One follows the descent of a scrappy indie production into a full-blown fiasco and megalomaniacal folly.

At first, we're led to think we're in for a funny, affectionate portrayal of eccentricity. But as equipment malfunctions and debt piles up, it becomes clear the actual subject is the dangerously empowering nature of fanaticism.

Ridiculous as it is, Audience of One is more chilling than funny.

Entertaining in a one-dimensional way, but ultimately rather sad, partly because of the level of delusion on display and partly because Gazowsky and company are an easy target.

Real-life mockumentary.

Audience Reviews for Audience of One

A balanced view of what seems to be delusional faith. Thoughtful Christians should check it out. Similar but less disturbing than Jesus Camp.

Absolutely fascinating and absolutely strange. Making a Biblical science-fiction film? You couldn't make that up if you tried.


I agree with Jeff. Richard is a very interesting guy. If you agree with his views or not, I think is irrelevant. The guy who made the movie did a good job to give the audience an unbiased view. I ordered my dvd from the website ( and I plan on showing my friends to see what they think. _H.C.
