Directed by Jeff Larson.
Get Mad at Sin ! is a one-man performance reanimating a historical document: an out-of-print vinyl record of a sermon by the evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, recorded live at the First Assembly of God in Van Buren, Arkansas, circa 1971. Conceived and performed by Andrew
Dinwiddie under the direction of Jeff Larson, Get Mad at Sin ! strives to achieve perfect audio fidelity to the original record while reincarnating Swaggart’s carpetpacing, pulpit-pounding performance. The result is a complicated portrait of Swaggart in his prime—legendary Pentecostal preacher, pioneer of radio and televangelism, fiery rhetorician, best-selling gospel artist of all time, and first cousin of rock-and-roller Jerry Lee Lewis—before he reached the height of his fame and imploded in 1988.
