The first feature length by Damon Cardasis, known as the producer of Maggie’s Plan, is a drama inspired from music, irony of life and imagination of children. Saturday Church is a unique film that marries the genre conventions of musical cinema with drama and which tells the struggles of a 14-year-old who clings on to dreams as an escape from his sexual and religious identity crises. Cardasis melds different genres together as he bridges childhood and adulthood with an outstanding take. Saturday Church is a heart-warming, sensitive, poetic, and exuberant film.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
