Available to watch for free on QFT Player, Dust on the Bible (1989) is John T. Davis' remarkable time capsule film of Belfast's street preachers.
On the street corners, in the tabernacles, at the cattle fairs and in large convention centres, the people of Ulster are warned by pastors and preachers about the last days of the Apocalypse.
Dust on the Bible is a lyrical, visual poem about these latter day prophets. Focusing on Belfast’s charismatic street preachers the film traces the journey of a lonesome drifter seeking salvation in the gospel halls of this ‘troubled godforsaken place’.
John T. Davis is internationally recognised as Northern Ireland’s most distinctive documentary filmmaker and cinematographer. QFT hosted a full retrospective of John's work back in 2017. We are delighted to be able to host a selection of John's classic films on QFT Player.
