The multi-award winning documentary film, HOLY FRIT, will have its California premiere, live and in-person at the world famous TCL Chinese Theatre, in Hollywood, CA. The film will screen on September 11th at 11:30am.
HOLY FRIT, the first feature documentary by Director/Producer, Justin Monroe, is a visceral 3-year race against time, where Tim Carey, a talented, yet unknown, Los Angeles artist bluffs his way into winning the commission to create the world’s largest stained-glass window of its kind. Unfortunately, Tim doesn’t know how to make his complicated design. After a desperate search, he finds someone who might have the answer… a famous glass maestro, named Narcissus Quagliata.
As this documentary unfolds, the clash of two big personalities slowly transforms into the forging of a lasting friendship, while Master and Protégé struggle to attempt a masterpiece of epic proportions. Even though this story takes place in the niche world of an ancient art-form, it gives a universally fun, heartfelt, and comedic look into the drama of any human endeavor that is greater than the sum of its parts.
This dramatic and even comedic collision of art, business, religion and human ambition has roots winding through South Pasadena from Judson Studios, a 5th generation stained-glass company who challenge 1,000 year-old traditions as they help tackle a $90 million mega-church commission of a window that is virtually the size of a basketball court, to South Pasadena residents Justin Monroe (director/producer), Tim Carey (lead character), Sophia Carey (supporting character) and producer Chris Saito.
