Theirs Is The Kingdom, 2020, USA Feature film (edited for length), 56 minutes, Dir: Christopher Zaluski

At the intersection of poverty and portraiture, Theirs is the Kingdom follows the rare creation of a contemporary fresco mural inside the sanctuary of a small church in Asheville, NC.

This is a painting not of the rich and powerful, but of people battling homelessness, addiction, and mental illness. From first sketch to final unveiling, the viewer witnesses the difficulties of this ancient artistic technique while also meeting an ensemble cast of complex characters.

The filmmaker will be present for discussion following this screening.
