TEARS OF GOD
Dir. Robbie Hillyer Barnett, 2016
68 mins. USA.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 12 – 7:30 PM – FILMMAKER IN PERSON!
In collaboration with The Playlist’s Indie Beat podcast, Spectacle is pleased to present a one-night-only special screening of Robbie Hillyer Barnett’s TEARS OF GOD. Longing for reunion with the dead and seduced by the chaotic allure of possession, a young woman struggles to find meaning in a barren, apocalyptic landscape, while those around her succumb to despair and madness.
“Just about every scene in Barnett’s debut is breathtaking; cryptic and haunting, TEARS OF GOD is downright astounding, especially the wandering cinematography, apparition-like in its recordings.” – Kevin Rakestraw, Film Pulse
