THE FAITHFUL: The King, The Pope, The Princess
October 09 only
“I was both fascinated and very moved by the human spirit evident in the film, the contemplation of connection, imagery, love and loss. An epic journey, both intimate and global. A work of art.” -Anne Flatté, filmmaker
Film also plays in the Roxie Virtual Cinema starting October 15.
Q&A with director Annie Berman after the show!
A Pope John Paul II lollipop. An Elvis Presley shower curtain. A Princess Diana teacup. These are just some of the countless pieces of memorabilia that these pop culture icons’ most devoted fans collect and cherish – but why? The Faithful‘s director, Annie Berman, explores the deep veneration and legacies of the Pope, the Princess, and the King. Over the course of 20 years, Berman profiles these figures’ biggest fans and makes numerous pilgrimages to Vatican City, Graceland, and Kensington Palace. As the years go by, the film itself becomes increasingly entwined with Berman’s daily life and identity, much like how these officially-licensed knick-knacks define the fans she filmed.
Directed by Annie Berman. USA. 2021. 90 min.
