Hand of God
How does a film about Catholic clergy abuse not descend into depression? It helps when the victim doesn’t act like one - but uses his own intellect and humor to fight back. Unlike any other look at this topic - Hand of God is a provocative tale of one survivor and his family. The paint is peeled off generations of blind faith as a family tries to regain its spiritual footing, and a survivor comes to incendiary conclusions about Corporate Catholicism. This is a visually compelling and poetic portrait of family, community and the triumph of individual spirits.
