"Godspeed plays like Arctic Circle Faulkner, all Old Testament style sin and retribution."- Todd Brown, Twitch
Our Closing Night Gala presentation is Robert Saitzyk’s Godspeed, winner of the Special Jury Prize for Exceptional Artistic Achievement at the CineVegas Film Festival.
Charlie Shepard is a modern day faith healer in a small Alaskan town – a man who claims God has Blessed him with the power to heal. Charlie ekes out a meager living with his young son and wife Rebecca, until the fatal night that his entire family is brutally, senselessly murdered by unknown assailants in a seemingly random act of horrific violence.
Six months later, he’s a shell of a man. Then, a young woman named Sarah appears in town and pleading for help to heal her father. Charlie’s true journey now begins in this stylish thriller that explores the limits of humanity on the edges of the Northern Frontier.
