"Just what, exactly, is going on here?" is not an unpopular question among visitors to the state of Utah. Tyrone Davies spent eight years with a video camera asking that question to nearly every Utahn he met. The result is a discursive collection of stories, interviews and media collages about the cultural landscape of the "State of Deseret". GLORIOUS THINGS ARE SUNG OF ZION presents a plethora of unexpectedly diverse "best answers" to this enduring question that go far, far beyond the most common answer ("there are a lot of Mormons here") to reveal a collection of intricately intertwined stories about utopian ideology.
This is a six-hour documentary in three parts. It is currently being submitted to film festivals internationally. To view an excerpt of this film, contact Tyrone Davies at firstname.lastname@example.org
