Dwight and his sister Jessie reach a crossroads over what to do about their younger brother Thomas' mysterious illness. The increasingly dangerous task of keeping him alive weighs heavy on sensitive Dwight, and as a fiercely private and close-knit family unit, Thomas and Jessie depend on him and the rituals they've learned in order to keep their secret.

Reviews:

“A beautiful cinematic meditation on sacrifice." - Hammer to Nail

 

“An intense feature debut...oxygen may feel as if it's at a minimum in the world that Cuartas has created, but the film itself feels like a breath of fresh air..." – Moveable Fest

 

“A heartbreaking tale that hits you with a gut punch of bittersweetness.” – Nightmarish Conjurings

 

An unflinching look at the lengths people will go to for family ties, but it's also a story about loneliness, a story which you know is going to collapse in on itself at some point." - Warped Perspective

Scenes from an Empty Church

In a locked-down NYC, two priests open their church doors to those seeking salvation during the most isolating of times.

Throughout their encounters with the city's sweetest, wildest and weirdest, the two priests learn the importance of connection, empathy and open-mindedness. Sometimes a little faith is all you need to make it through the bad times.

From writer/director Onur Tukel (Catfight), and featuring standout performances from Kevin Corrigan, Max Casella, and Thomas Jay Ryan, Scenes from an Empty Church is a uniquely timely and timeless spotlight on the search for life’s meaning, told with Tukel’s trademark wit and wisdom.
