The Rainbow Man/John 3:16
by Sam Green
1:10:00 (Feature + Short Films)


Available on DVD for the first time is the breakthrough documentary by Academy Award Nominee Sam Green (The Weather Underground).

Millions of Americans have seen Rollen Frederick Stewart, aka "Rainbow Man", who achieved notoriety during the late '70s by appearing in the crowd at thousands of televised sporting events wearing his trademark rainbow-colored afro wig. Later—after he became a born-again Christian—he added a sign reading "John 3:16". Over the years, grabbing the attention of the media became an obsession for Stewart. He abandoned his home and marriage to roam the country living out of his car, studying TV Guide each week in a never-ending quest to stay televised...with tragic consequences.


Selected Press Quotes
