Twist of Faith

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

The immensely sad story of one man’s blighted life illustrates the enormity of the child abuse carried out unnder the blind eye of the Catholic church in this moving doc. Ohio firefighter Tony Comes’ childhood trauma was reignited when he inadvertently moved his young family to the street where his own abuser was living; what follows, partly through video diary material, is his struggle with a Church reluctant to confront its demons as well as his own anger and shame. As a child, Comes found his situation ‘too screwed up to question’; as an adult it has denied him the solace of faith and community.
