“Hands of God” with Filmmaker Joe Cultrera

October 26, 2007 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

How does filmmaker Joe Cultrera’s film Hands of God (2006), 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 poetic and provocative tale of one survivor and his family beyond the headlines. statistics and ecclesiastical spin. Cultrera grounds the story of his brother Paul in the details of their Sicilian-American Catholic upbringing. From baptism to abuse, silence to dialogue, resignation to action, the film follows one person’s internal and external journey from potential priest to a scathing critic. Hand of God is a frankly told tale of betrayal. In balancing faith against disappointment, the subjects survive it all with their humor intact.
