STATIONS OF THE CROSS

DIRECTOR: DIETRICH BRÜGGEMANN - GERMANY

Devout teenager Maria and her family belong to the ultra-conservative Society of St. Paul. Maria is intent on walking a godly path, and yet she has questions. Why would God give her brother a learning disability? Why does her mother forbid her from seeing a boy from a different church? As the contradictions of devout faith and modern life multiply, Maria eschews the easy way out and chooses to follow the hardest road of all—that of the savior, with all the pain and sacrifice it may entail. Told in single-shot tableaux that parallel Christ’s journey to his own crucifixion, Brüggemann’s provocative film serves as both an indictment of fundamentalist faith’s inflexibility and an exploration of one impressionable teen’s struggle to find her own path in life.
