After filming in 11 cities and four continents, uncovering the power of ‘immaculate perception’ and staging an epic battle between zombies, peasants and the LGBTQ Army, the Stamford/Greenwich-based comedy troupe NPeaches is wrapping up production of its first flick, “Charlie Christ: The Gospel According To Fools.”
Shot entirely in Super 8, the independently-made film is a post-apocalyptic religious satire set in a world at war. The plot, according to the film’s website, is as follows:
Italian scientist, Claudio Chiuso, develops an elixir that enables him to see the heavenly realm with the naked eye; they call it ‘Immaculate Perception.’
It isn’t long before the public competes for God’s favor and plunges into World War III in order to seize their own selfish visions of paradise.
Soon, the true face of God shows itself at humanity’s most vulnerable moment. God-Man—as he is known for his human flaws and super villainy—swoops in to reclaim the throne of eden, wreaking havoc on the world as we know it; only pockets of humanity survive.
Luckily our valiant knight, Charlie Kemp, arrives on scene to give one last militia a fighting chance for survival against the hungry, undead souls of God-Man’s zombie army!
Founded at the University of Connecticut in Stamford in 2007, the comedy troupe produces sketch comedy and blogs, which it posts to its website. “Charlie Christ: The Gospel According To Fools” is the group’s first film.
