Introduction and Q&A with Carlo Guillermo Proto.
With incredible access and unflinching insight, this unbelievable film follows three members of the Harting family – a troupe of performers who make their living in the Montreal Metro and all of whom are blind. Haunted by the tragic drowning death of the only sighted member of their family, they turn for solace to the teachings of Russian mystic Grigori Petrovich Grabovoi, who promises his followers the ability to resurrect the dead.
Presented in partnership with the Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase.
