About Montclair Film Festival Presents Believer
CLOSING NIGHT FILM
Dan Reynolds has spent years thoughtfully examining his beliefs. Raised within the culture of the Mormon church, Reynolds stayed within the fold while going on to form Imagine Dragons, one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world. Dan comes to a crossroads when he witnesses fellow members of the Mormon church spurned due to their sexual orientation. Since 2008, teen suicide rates in Utah have skyrocketed, which many people attribute to the Mormon church’s official stance regarding same-sex relationships., Reynolds decides to take action; using his position to foster acceptance and bring the community together, Reynolds challenges the church to transform itself. Don Argott’s BELIEVER is a portrait of an artist determined to change the world through understanding, compassion, and love. Featuring stunning music and concert footage from Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, and many more, BELIEVER delivers hope through the power of music.
Produced by Live Nation Productions, BELIEVER is an HBO Documentary Film.
Q&A with Dan Reynolds, Tyler Glenn (Neon Trees), director Don Argott, and producer Sheena Joyce, moderated by Stephen Colbert
