High, Fast and Wonderful (2008)
195 225 $195.00 - $225.00
A personal documentary from forensic psychologist/producer Maryanne Galvin that approaches faith from a Western Judeo-Christian angle minus the religious overtones, HIGH, FAST and WONDERFUL explores the personal cultural and spiritual ramifications of individuals seeking respite in some very unusual places from life's tragedies in an attempt to rekindle their faith. Tracking ministries serving "People On The Move," the film probes the hopes, fears and faith of a diverse flock who exist at that place where peril and pleasure intersect. Daredevil circus clowns, champion race car drivers and migrant workers reveal to Dr. Galvin that even the briefest encounter can inspire relief from life's ups and downs. HIGH, FAST and WONDERFUL prompts viewers to consider a rather unique perspective on building spiritual relationships and communities as a means to cope with many of life's most difficult challenges, including death, illness, separation from loved ones and social struggles. An interior as well as surface journey, the film also offers a compilation of intimate interviews, rare archival footage, animation, a still photo montage and a lively musical score.
