FAITH HEALER screens at FFF2010
The Flagstaff Film Festival is delighted to welcome the short, kinda-doc kinda-not, FAITH HEALER, to our the growing list of compelling independent films to be screened this August 9-16 in cool and piney Flagstaff, Arizona.

FAITH HEALER, dir. Adam Hirsch
FAITH HEALER is an engrossing thriller, the story of an alleged healer, Jefferson Bull Fermor, who sat for two interviews of a documentary before unexpectedly fleeing. Shortly after, the filmmakers found an old box, the contents of which allowed them a glimpse into his mysterious life.

The film unravels the documentary form while searching for truth. Fact becomes blended together with fiction, and fa├žades begin to crack. The result is an engrossing mystery, a reflection on form, and, most compellingly, a love story.
