Cast: Kathy Smith (Pearlie), David Harewood (Abe Wilkins), Edwina Findley (Melva Neddy).
Details: “How could a man suffocate a child for two hours, the entire time believing he was helping him?” Free in Deed is a fictional, filmic reinterpretation of events and themes provoked by this true story. The film explores the relationships and circumstances surrounding a faith healing and the forces that lead the characters to define themselves through beliefs.
According to The Southern Casting Call, the movie is inspired by the 2003 death of a child during what was supposed to be a miraculous Pentecostal healing service.
In order to tend for his own ill son, an intensely religious man secretly returns to his hometown where, years ago, his attempted miracle became a criminal act. With complexity and emotional power, Free in Deed explores faith and redemption in rural America. Sources: Indiegogo campaign page; Ion Cinema. Photo Source: Indiegogo.com.
