Richard Dutcher. God’s Army. Brigham City. States of Grace.
Some call him “The Father of Mormon Cinema” He’s not sure he likes that very much. Listen to find out why.
In 2007, the Provo Daily Herald published an open letter from Dutcher on its editorial page where he announced, “I am no longer a practicing member of the church.” He explained that he had taken a spiritual journey that “may ultimately prove incompatible with Mormon orthodoxy.” He hoped to explore human spirituality in film more broadly, but like early church leader Oliver Cowdery, someday he might return to the faith.
Find out how that journey is going so far.
We’ll be saving a seat for ya
