FALL (82m / Hamilton / dir. Terrance Odette) ather Sam, an aging Roman Catholic Priest living contently at a Niagara Falls parish, receives a letter forcing his complacent life into descent. Now haunted by the memory of a teenage boy, Father Sam must reconcile the truth: did a sexual encounter take place 40 years ago? Can a moral custodian of the faithful; a dispenser of God's grace, transcend his own FALL?
Post screening panel discussion: A Psychoanalysis of Father Sam Ryan
