This intimate and eloquent documentary traces the unorthodox path of Daniel Smith- eccentric musician, visual artist and devout Christian- as he creates a musical phenomenon with siblings and friends under the name Danielson Famile
, eventually struggling to realize his own identity as an artist once the family members begin their own adult lives. Along the way he mentors an unknown singer-songwriter named Sufjan Stevens, whose subsequent success stands in contrast to the music world's uneasy reception of Danielson just a few years earlier. Combining hybrid storytelling, essential live performances, animated sequences and a dollop of Danielson archives, director DL Aronson offers a provocative yet subtle look at a complex life outside the mainstream.Special Features:
