Storyline

Shot during the Gulf War, this surreal and politically prescient film deconstructs the language of religious and economic America, finding alternatives within the language 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 in the American dream. Alternating between black and white and color, we sink into the dislocations of this dream as an artist/interviewer struggles to understand the relationship between religion and capital. The film ends with a creative act echoing back to our earliest purpose, to understand the world through art. Written by Hamilton Sterling
