Dr. Alfred Adams is posing some bold questions.
“Are We Living in the End of Times?” he asks in his latest documentary, a film that tackles tough content as it attempts to shine a light on the current state of affairs in the world.
Born and raised in LaPlace, he has ties to the Do Right Full Gospel Baptist Church in Gonzales, where he works on audio and video. The Rev. Irvin Blouin Sr., the senior pastor at the church, plays a major role in the hour-long documentary.
In the film, Adams analyzes the social impact of the current worldwide economic woes, the drive toward global government, and the uneasy state of foreign affairs.
Adams directed, produced and wrote the documentary, which is slated to premiere in Metairie by March. This film is his fifth, and he’s hoping it gains an international audience.
Once again, Adams has recruited the help of Steve Blaze, who’s well-known as a musician in the New Orleans-based band Lillian Axe. Blaze performed the narration and music score for all five of the documentaries.
Adams ended up working with Blaze after sending out an e-mail.
“I was a fan,” Adams said. “I explained the project and he said he’d be glad to help.”
The documentary was filmed on the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras festivities. This was done to illustrate a cross-section of society to interview, Adams said.
People on the street were asked if they had ever heard of radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips and the New North American Union.
“We were shocked to see they were not educated,” Adams said, recalling how it seemed so many people “lived their lives as if tomorrow will always be there.”
