SinopsisDirected by Don Argott (DeLorean, Batman & Bill, The Art of the Steal), Believer follows Mormon Dan Reynolds, Frontman for the Gramy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons, as he takes on a new mission to explore how the mormon Church treats its LGBTQ members. With the rising suicide rate amongst teens in the state of Utah, his concern with the church's policies sends him on an unexpected path of acceptance and change.
The film documents a year of Reynolds' life during the process of organizaing the first-ever Love Loud Festival concert in Orem, Utah, to benefit such gay rights organizations as GLAAD and the Trevor Project, among others. WhileBelieverstakes a broader look at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' treatment of LGBTQ members, it also focuses on the suicide rate in the community, which has skyrocketed in the last decade. The film centers on Reynolds, Aja Volkman, his wife and fellow musician, and Tyler Glenn, front man for Neon Trees, among others.
