Slamdance On The Road presents the Texas premiere of Bible Quiz with short film Winkelmann, TX. Q & A's with filmmakers Nicole Teeny and Caleb Garcia to follow their screenings.
Bible Quiz, winner of Slamdance's 2013 Grand Jury prize for Best Documentary, challenges stereotypes as it tells the story of a teen love set against the unusual backdrop of the religious sport of Bible Quiz. The film portrays an even-handed look at religion through the eyes of teenagers Mikayla and her crush team captain JP as they explore faith, identity, sexuality and competition at one of the most unique summits in American religion today. Bible Quiz is Nicole Teeny's directorial debut.
“Nicole Teeny’s documentary about young love and the role religion can play in confusing budding romantic feelings is simple, unbiased, and ultimately quite moving” – Beth Hanna, IndieWire
