Editorial Reviews

Review

Rigorous, profound, and highly absurdist. --Thomas Harris, Los Angeles Independent Film Festival

An excellent first feature... an 'independent work' in the best sense of the word. --Rob Tregenza, Cinema Parallel

A real talent as far as capturing the idea that lyricism is formed from both the lovely and the bleak... A real and palpable sensitivity... An underlying sense of grace. --Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, critic

Product Description

Completed in 1996, this surreal and politically prescient film deconstructs the language of religious and economic America, finding artistic alternatives within the ethos of art. Faith of Our Fathers follows a cynical stranger who gives a lesson in capitalism's brutal nature to a naïve young man lost at the bottom of the American dream. Shot in black and white and color, and beginning with an artist/interviewer whose authorship of the narrative vies with that of the young man, we watch as an ever-increasing distance is revealed between dreams and truth, spiritual innocence and manipulative propaganda. Moving alongside this darkness is the life of art. The artist/interviewer questions the status quo and his search reveals not only the listless mandate of our faith, but the reflection and creativity to overcome it.
