Driven By Vision
This New VisionTV/Markham Street Films series visits the amazing sites created by eccentric visionaries all over North America.
Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel at the Popes request. But why has Leonard Knight spent years building his Salvation Mountain, a monumental, multi-coloured tribute to Gods love, out of stone and clay in the desert wastes of Slab City, California?
Driven By Vision, an eight-part program produced by Markham Street Films Inc. and VisionTV, introduces the viewer to visionaries like Leonard who have fashioned extraordinary homespun monuments to share their devotion with the world.
VisionTV presents the world premiere of this original series on Mondays, starting Oct. 31, at 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. ET.
Driven By Vision was produced by Judy Holm and directed by Michael McNamara (Radio Revolution, Flatly Stacked).
The series was filmed in High Definition, at locations all over the U.S. and Canada. Each half-hour episode features insightful narration, along with first-person accounts from shrine builders and their fans (or detractors). In its depiction of fantastic visions made real, Driven By Vision reveals the power of belief to move people in strange and wonderful ways.
