HIGHER GROUND

Vera Farmiga’s directorial debut, HIGHER GROUND, depicts the landscape of a tight-knit spiritual community thrown off-kilter when one of their own begins to question her faith. Inspired by Carolyn S. Briggs’ memoir, This Dark World (screenplay by Carolyn S. Briggs and Tim Metcalfe & Carolyn S. Briggs), the film tells the story of a thoughtful woman’s struggles with belief, love, and trust.

Faith, love and honesty are the cornerstones of this story of a woman who learns that no matter how many times she loses her footing, she has within herself all that’s necessary to get to a higher place.

SARAH’S KEY

“It does provide audiences with the satisfaction of seeing and hearing an important truth expressed, and that’s better than making you feel good. That’s making you feel something.”

-Mick LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
