What Happens When A Stuggling Novelist Is Hailed As A Literal Prophet

Video: Khyan Mansley’s “The Ministry” is a short film all about the saddest sack of a writer, Henry, who has only ever published one novel. Once he discovers a cult that reveres his work as the coded words of god, things get a little weird.

“The Ministry” paints Henry’s misery very well, to the point where the acceptance (and money) offered by the cult is clearly just too seductive for him to resist. Also, it’s just a funny short with great comedic timing.
