Every new Year’s Eve, some stories begin and others end. In this unique and timeless film, we follow an ensemble cast as they make their way through a night that will change the course of their lives forever. Inspired by the work of John Cassavetes (Shadows, Faces), and shot in the experimental style of Dogme 95 (The Celebration, Breaking the Waves), FIGHTFUCKPRAY questions what we call basic human nature and exposes the fate of ordinary people who don’t fit into the mainstream.
You are watching the director's reel for Dan Bush, featuring clips from THE SIGNAL, GHOST OF OLD HIGHWAYS, SHUT EYE, THE RECONSTRUCTION OF WILLIAM ZERO, and BILLY THE KID: NEW EVIDENCE, narrated by Kevin Costner.
"Intercutting between a soldier’s harrowing day in the midst of WWII and a young office drone’s day in the sixties (yes, it was inspired by the Beatles song), Bush’s virtually dialogue-free cinematic poem meditates on fathers and sons, the despair of a life unfulfilled, and also the strange subliminal connections people make with one another. It also gets more surreal and haunting as it progresses..." —Bilge Ebiri, VULTURE
