Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Procession in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director/editor Robert Greene, moderated by Steve James (City So Real, Hoop Dreams), is included as part of this screening experience.
Six midwestern men — all survivors of childhood sexual assault at the hands of Catholic priests and clergy — come together to direct a drama therapy-inspired experiment designed to collectively work through their trauma. As part of a radically collaborative filmmaking process, they create fictional scenes based on memories, dreams and experiences, meant to explore the church rituals, culture and hierarchies that enabled silence around their abuse. In the face of a failed legal system, we watch these men reclaim the spaces that allowed their assault, revealing the possibility for catharsis and redemption through a new-found fraternity.
From Netflix, Procession will be available to stream November 19.
