Embedded below is the trailer for New Jerusalem, R. Alverson’s follow-up to The Builder. The film features Colm O’Leary reprising his role from The Builder and, in his first role since 2006's Old Joy, musician/actor Will “Bonny ‘Prince’ Billy” Oldham as an evangelical bent on ensuring his salvation. Alverson is currently submitting New Jerusalem to film festivals worldwide.
Both The Builder (out on DVD July 27) and New Jerusalem will be the first films released by indie record label Jagjaguwar. The label is currently promoting the first film by offering several unreleased songs from their artists online in a series they've dubbed Music For The Builder.
