Home / Now Showing / PADRE PIO / MARY
PADRE PIO, 2022, Dir: Abel Ferrara, 104 Minutes, Capstone Global, Italy/Germany.
In English and Italian with English subtitles.
Abel Ferrara’s most recent film is a biography of Franciscan priest and mystic Padre Pio, known for the miracles he is said to have performed prior to his death in 1968 and the appearance of the stigmata on his hands. Though heavily contested by the Vatican and others, Padre Pio’s reputation among the Italian populace contributed to his current sainthood and inspired Ferrara’s 2022 Venice Film Festival entry, starring Shia LaBeouf.
MARY, 2005, Dir: Abel Ferrara, 94 Minutes, Italy/France/USA.
In English, Hebrew, and French with English subtitles.
Following the production of a controversial film-within-a-film about the life of Jesus, lead actor Marie (Juliette Binoche) seeks spiritual truth in Jerusalem while director Tony (Matthew Modine), returns to New York. Tony’s personal crisis of faith comes to a head when he’s interviewed by a reporter (Forest Whitaker) during the press junket. With Marion Cotillard and Heather Graham.
