The Recovery Church is excited to offer a screening of “Flesh and Blood”, a 2017 South by Southwest film festival favorite! Please join us for and evening of music and thought provoking entertainment! This event is free and open to all! Doors open at 6:45 pm.
Based on real life events & captured in a hyper-realistic style, Flesh & Blood unapologetically straddles the line between narrative & documentary to lay bare the beautifully flawed nature of life. Reality belies fiction & vice versa as the characters in the film are played by their real-life counterparts. The central character, Mark, is played by director/actor Mark Webber & draws from elements of Mark’s actual life. The character of Guillermo (Mark’s younger brother who struggles with Asperger’s Syndrome in real life) is played by Mark Webber’s actual younger brother Guillermo & takes us on a true-to-life journey through the eyes of a misunderstood & bullied teenager. The character of Big G is played by Guillermo’s actual father who in reality & in the film is coming to grips with drug addiction, the abandonment of his son & imminent death from “Hep C”.
